And make sure your group knows that the car lane is not a passing lane for your designated bike lane


Nobody surfs here anymore..........it's too crowded

I faded a whole pack of lancers that were hogging all lanes on PCH into a parked OCTA bus.

Didn't want to do it. Felt I owed it to them. grin2

They ride along Harbor Blvd. towards Ventura early on Saturdays. One day, a bright and sunny day after a big rain, they were all lined up, with me and a few trucks hauling strawberries coming up on them. The trucks went slow, so about 100 of them went into the puddle by 5th Street as the trucks graciously went around them. I backed off a bit, then gunned it, spraying all of them in a brown lip of a barrel, at 40 mph. It was glorious!

Like this, but way longer and bigger.

I remember as a kid we kind of did the opposite of that on our stingray bikes. There was a big puddle in the gutter at the end of an alley that had a bit of slope going down to it. Since there was a little trickle of water still streaming into it down the middle of the alley, it was pretty slick (very smooth cement).

Well we decided to cruise down it at some speed, pull a long skid into a brody ending at the puddle, and it make a huge splash out into the street perpendicular to the alley puddle. All the momentum and ending the brody perfectedly in the puddle at speed made for a large splash that pushed out 10-15 feet+ easy.

After a few times it got boring. Then, a car comes down the street, and my brother goes for it, pulls the skid into a brody, and just as the car comes by, it splashes the whole side of it. Well, this one time a lady drives by with her drivers side window open, and we nail her in the face really bad (good?).

At first we thought for sure we were in trouble big time, but she kinda laughed, and was relieved we were able to stop our bikes from running into her. I think she was a bit scared and thought we were going to ride across her path or hit her car, and was relieved we were able to stop, even though it nailed her pretty good. hat

Lancers think that's the schizz. Non-Lancers think it's a total dork get-up. It's a viewpoint thing.

Wtf is a lancer?

Google still won't tell me.

And if those freaking road bicyclers actually did ride in a suit of armor with a lance. That would be sorta cool. I would give them right of way

I think the updated term for lancers is liars.
