It's not that bad unless the doc hits a nerve and I've only had that happen once. The after feeling is more an annoyance than anything and will be gone by morning.

BTW, there are a lot of people getting the same injections when I'm there. I had no idea that there were so many people with the same problem.

California State Crit Champion (Cat 3). I beat Justin Williams in that race. :) ...he was 15 - LOL. That was my last year of racing before I hung up my bikes for 15 years.

EDIT: The other jersey is my daughter's softball all-star team jersey and District Champ medal from her first year playing the sport (she was 8). Next year, she will be playing in college.

One thing I have never been accused of is being a bear. I have been bare, but not for competitive reasons.

All of our cats have been kept indoors, 'cause I don't need em killing little critters and I don't want em getting killed by bigger critters (or autos).

Amen brother!

I think the century I did was about that much. The Sequoia Century is about 10,000, IIRC.

I have been accused of being a bear, but in my defense, I was 30# heavier and still had a beard, plus I wore flannel shirts.

I already signed up for the one I mentioned.

I am not genetically inclined to grow facial hair that is publicly appealing.

Y'all should feel free to make fun of me. This makes NINE.

Postponed trip to Sonoma County for 9th bike till Saturday. But you can still make fun of me.

EDIT: Here's the bike. It might help you understand.....

Ours, too. My 'hood is thick with coyotes. Outdoor cats don't last very long.

A coyote tried to get the peacock twice in the last week. Saturday morning I heard him scream and I went out and he was on the roof and the coyote was running away.
He walks up and down the street and he's been here for about 4 years. I'd like to see him hang around even though he is noisy during mating season.

When I lived in Kagel Canyon we left our cat outside every day for 5 years. A lot of animals are abandoned there and we think he was one of them. He showed up one day and stayed around and he was friendly so after a few days I let him in. He definitely wanted to be out every day, though. A lot of feral cats came and went and some dogs, too. There was one feral cat I saw for 9 years. He wouldn't come near people and wouldn't accept cat food. I used to see him carrying a gopher or sleeping in the shadows.

The law of nature...you either figure out how to survive, or you die.

I've been to Supercross at the Colosseum a couple times. It's a great place for that but I don't see how they could put a stock car track in there.

I saw plenty of coyotes in the yard there. I saw 2 mountain lions near there when I was on my mtb.

Because our yard backs onto a creek, we replaced our falling-down solid fence with a 'deer fence', which is basically panels of 2"x4" fencing between the posts, with runners and footers. Anyway, one day I was out in the yard and saw something moving on the other side of the fence. It was a coyote. And he was one brazen MF, too! Looked me in the eyes and WALKED away.

Coyotes and bobcats don't worry me, as far as my personal safety. Mountain lions and bears are a totally different story. Thankfully, I have not had an encounter with either.

If you go shirtless and ride flat pedals, with home made aero bars, the lions will be afraid of you. So I hear, anyway.

I was getting in my car and saw a coyote about 10 feet away, just outside the carport. He was just looking at me and I clapped my hands and he ran off.
