Funny, that. I was, er, speculating with someone just the other day what George Lucas Esq. might have been playing with when he came up for the idea of that iconic yet oddly familiar helmet shape.

Pete,

I managed to put together a decent ride with a few climbs that will end right at the beginning of yours, so can I meet you guys at Ono?
Here is the route, I'll meet you all there if that works: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/1741706
Can you guesstimate what time you'll be there?

We should be in that area at about 9:30-9:45am. We usually make a quick last stop at a round wooden hut with shade and a few vending machines located HERE. That would be a good place to meet us. The other good alternative would be at the wooden pavilion at the top of the climb around 10:00-10:15am.
