    Be careful out there...

    Lost my dad on 5/21 to a Mini bus driver in Ensenada. He was riding a 70's vintage Schwinn Varsity.

    Yes. I found an old Varsity that needed some TLC, cleaned it up and sent it to him. He was thrilled.

    Thank you all very much. Of all the things that could have taken him, I can't believe this was it.

    We're trying to recovery it from the Ensenada police (they're holding it for "evidence"). It was a sky blue one with drop bars and white tape. My dad loved it. I know this isn't the time or place for this, but I have to add that he was in a good place, finally, and he was happy. Despite all the junk in his past, he loved to pedal a bike...
