    Visited Club Tombey today ;^(

    Had 7 members of the club show up today. Several people are riding in the Ocean to Lake Century tomorrow so the turn out was thin.

    We did the usual 40+ mile Satruday loop.

    Made the turn on a dead end at about 25 mi. Got off into gravel on the side of the road and boom, down I go.

    So here I am keeping up with the elite A riders from the club, and I gotta go do something stupid like that.

    "keeping up" is the operative phrase here. Welcome to the club!

    I got the wrong attachment.

    The one that I got was just a ride map. I wanted to see a photo of the other bike riders pointing and laughing.

    The blood and the offduty nurses that rendered a masage to the Aching areas would have been better.

    Congratulations, it's often best to get the clubs obligations out of the way early in the season.

    Last August I had a really good-looking nurse bandage my elbow in the ER. I calmly watched her wrap it over the IV tubeing and didn't say anything knowing that I was going to get to watch her do it over again. My wife thought it was funny too.

    The only picture they took, however, was one of me looking stupid with both arms in slings.

    Destroy the evidence. I hadn't considered that possibility. Excellent decision!

    I'm not applying for membership...yet, but would someone please enlighten me as to the mysterious, mist shrouded origins of the name "Club Tombey"? Inquiring minds want to know.

    I think it is derived from the French verb 'tomber' or 'tombez' (I'm a little rusty) which means "to fall", and would be pronounced 'tombey'. Whoever thought of it was very clever. It might have been Tom Bom.

    Having taken French in HS and having a French heritage, I concur with TWL as to the origin of the name. I never even questioned the name.

    TWL is correct on both counts. The verb is "tomber" and means to fall. "You fall" is "vous tomez" In both cases the the word is pronounced "tome bey"

    It started with Mad Max and the correct spelling of it is "Club Tombay".--Just to Americanise the sound of the French Verb "Tomber"--To fall. Several other names were muted and I thought it was going to be the Turtle Club. You fall over on the bike and do a very good impression of a Turtle lying upside down struggling to get up.

    I avoided another visit to the club yesterday. I was coming out onto the street from our local bike/walking path, emerging from some bushes obscuring my view of the road, right where I fell before. At the last possible second I saw the car approaching, but this time I was ready! I unclipped, keeping my panic level below the idiot line, and stopped. Progress!
