Full zip jerseys work so well it's a wonder they weren't standard sooner. For today's monthly C&V ride, I wore an old NorCal Forum jersey from 2008, with a half zip. It's not horrible, but it is less convenient. Plus the zipper is one of those sucky Voler ones. It was mild enough today that I could just leave it zipped up.

We had a nice ride despite the heat. Kept it short @45 miles and only a couple thousand feet of up. 12 of us rode over the hills to Beverly Hills for a snack, then some steep climbs back over. At the top of the canyon there is weird intersection and one guy started to go when he shouldn't have and another guy yelled "stop". He stopped and started yelling at the other guy. Nobody knew him so we didn't know what to expect.

This got ridiculous. The one guy said he was just trying to protect the new guy and the new guy said he yelled too loud or something. F-bombs were dropped and it got more heated and it went on and on. A couple of us asked them to stop, no dice. Finally I yelled "please" . Anyway we dropped the guy on the next climbs but he caught up later at a light, then went off on his own. The bad thing was we lost another guy who was hurting a bit. Also a new guy, we wondered if he knew his way back.
Never a dull moment.

I'm trying to remember the last time 2 guys on the ride almost came to blows. Can't recall that happening recently, anyway.

"Paged" by your cell phone via text message?
I vote to replace paged with texted. Pagers were gone by the late 90's. TTKU

we were still using pagers in 2008 when I worked for / left a bank/financial services company (a top 10 bank in the US)

of course would get paged at the worst times

in Ohio - Natural Light costs less than water lol

two thumbs up !

back in the day - middle school / junior high years - one of my friends was a Zeppelin crazy / fanatic / nut

he was full of Zeppelin info - got us concert posters - 'boot leg' 8 track tapes etc

we repaid him by claiming BTO was a better band than Zeppelin - just to get him furious lol

sadly his life ended too early in a car accident

he is 3rd from the right in the picture *** (hat held over chest)

Some people don't like to be yelled at, man. Imagine that.

True, but he could have let it go after a couple F-bombs. He was way out of line.

Sounds like not really a pager but a hybrid notification system using smartphone technology on your end and old tech on theirs. Kind of like a USB to HDMI adapter.

Yes and could be. The app is Spok Mobile.

First for me today: I ****ed something up so bad on the boat, I had to cut a line with a ******g knife! Of course, I had a riding buddy out with me and was hoping to impress him with my skills.

Of the 11 other riders there, 5 were friends, 2 of those I've known for 30 years and 1 for about 20. Some of the others I know from riding with them and today there were 2 I had never seen before. 1 of those was the troublemaker and the other was the one we lost.
Very small turnout today, 10 or so regulars are up at Big Bear Lake to do an event ride and the heat kept people away, I'm sure.

It's a public club and the board is trying to recruit new members so sometimes you get undesirables.

Don't worry - if things went too smoothly, he wouldn't appreciate your skills. As long as you didn't tip your hand that you ****ed up, he'll be even more impressed with the dramatic save. :D

Effective knife skills are impressive. What?

Travel alert! US Highway 189 is closed from Calpet 23-134 (South of Big Piney) to LaBarge Calpet due to flash flooding and highway damage.
