Well, not only in SoCal but it was strange either way! I'm heading up Euclid on today's ride. As I approach Chapel of the Wildwoods I ride by this young dude on the side of the road. He's sweating like a dog, on some sort of BMX bike. He looks 20 or so. As I ride by he shouts,"you're cheating, you've got gears". I just laugh wondering how in the heck will he make it up the steep section near the chapel. It nearly kills me everytime with the gears.
I ride up to the tunnels then head back down. As I get to the bottom of the steep section previously mentioned, I see a cop car parked at the corner of Euclid and a sidestreet. A closer look and he has the youngster pushed up against the car and handcuffed!
As I rode by I wanted to shout, "now you're really cheating, you're getting a free ride!".
I figured I'd better not since cops around here shoot our type in the back like 36 times!
I know, "thanks for sharing". Geeze things are slow around here!
Any other strange stories?
