He seemed very agitated, I looked at his wheel and he hadn't loosened the valve on his presta tube.He looked a little like a tweaker with lots of home made or prison tattoos on his arms. I quickly decided it was probably a stolen bike. He wasn't wearing any cycling clothes. He was riding a Raleigh with drop handlebars, toe cages, I didn't get a look at the group set. He became more agitated and told me I could go. I was glad to get away from him.
I'll only stop if it is requested, as "no good deed goes unpunished." Or so it seems.
I live just North of downtown Long Beach Ca = lots of tweakers/bicycle theft. Lost a Trek.


Rode 38 early morning miles yesterday and headed out for more today.
At 71 it is time to get serious again. Yes, i need to take photos. How i've resisted it.
