Hello All,

I just have to pass this along. Afew days ago we were leaving Laws, California. Its big sky country with the 14,000ft White Mountains to the east and the 14,000ft Sierra Nevada to the west. According to the thermometer in our Suburban it was a toasty 100 degrees. In the shimmering distance we spot a lone cyclist and both remark on the toughness of the breed of riders in this area. As we approach, I see a traditional frame thats painted white with blue panels and CURLY STAYS! The rider has a mussette and is wearing a Peugeot jersey. We inadvertently follow him into the town of Bishop where we are able to engage in conversation. Hes says that he bought the bike at a trade show in 1981 from Alf!!
