What we have here is a failure to communicate.

Scott Crosby i'm in for 07:00 @ philosophical pace.

Left Ritual at about 7:10 AM. Usually we leave around 6:40 and the goal is to make breakfast at Google - closes at 9:30 AM. On a good day, the ride rolls in around 9:15. On a very fast day, 9 AM. Around Redwood City, already setting a blistering pace it became apparent we might be able to make the magical 9:30 AM cutoff and the pace amped up. We rolled through the googleplex right at 9:30, and they headed off to breakfast and I headed off to limp the remaining 8 miles to nVidia.

Philosophical pace - it's just some people have different philosophies than others. Somehow "Bike to Work" has turned into the 6:30 AM version of the Noon Ride.

I always worry when riders say they'll go an easy pace. They (and that includes me) almost never do.
