One last taste of Christmas

Some of you rent movies like Rocky or Rudy for inspiration. For me its just a simple gesture from a little rebel named Marcus. Keep the faith Marcus , We all know what a beating you took three weeks later when Fotomat said your pictures were ready.

PS: I miss Fotomat.

You would know if you were a member !

I got out for a double secret squirrel winter training ride yesterday. The ride was an all out effort from the first climb out of the Stater Bros parking lot until we hit the top of Jack Rabbit trail.

The ride total was Eight and no one team was represented. This was no Team Redlands ride. What was the importance of these 8 riders? What team kits were represented? Who tweeted the ride? What web site sanctioned this event? Isn't Monday an off day on the training calendar?

On the eve of a new year. New teams and new team kits. It appears an underground movement continues to grow and operate within the Redlands cycling scene. For a while now a rumour has been growing about a group of individuals who operate under the team kits that drape their backs.

The unofficial blog has been aware for some time of a Secret Society of riders that operate under the name Skull and Bikes. The organization appears to be made up of a select number of people from each team. The organization also appears to have a people in very high positions with the local cycling scene.

Don't look for this group at the local pizza place holding a secret meeting anytime soon. The meetings are secret , the members are few and there is no way to join this group and yes you would know if you were a member.

Team building message from the top:

The more representatives from the Team the better. Be sure to let Ben's team know you are there with Team Redlands and appreciate their support.

Rain please stop

Above is a picture of the window in my master bedroom. A few years ago I went with the local buffoon in town to get my windows retro fitted. They leaked last winter enough to cause some damage to the Hard wood floor.

This summer I decided I needed to address this problem before the upcoming winter. I guess I had a premonition that we were going to receive 30 days and 30 nights of rain.

In my line of work when you find a really crappy tax guy we suggest you find a new one. Apparently in the construction industry you hire the same guy twice.

I am going on night 2 off holding back the water from wrecking another hard wood floor. And apparently there is no end in sight to either prospect.

5 star Christmas stock pick

A few months ago I gave you my Five star stock pick for the summer. The recomendation was to buy 1000 shares of ACOM at 15.99. ACOM is currently trading north of 30.00 Profits on the buy ranged from 5,000 to 15,000 depending on your stomache.

So here is my Christmas gift snowman 5 star pick:

Buy Buy Buy the (KNOT) It is sitting at 9.71 share price. Buy today and sit on this stock. I will tell you when to sell.

Disclaimer: Choppers stock picks are not affiliated with Team Redlands nor does his summer internship at Goldman Sachs qualify him to make financial decisions. all investments are inherently risky and you should probably keep your money in a mattress during these volatile times.

Merry Christmas from the twins !

I uploaded this photo from a Christmas party I attended last night. I can honestly say that I wrote about 20 captions to go with this picture but none of them captured the moment.

Everyone at the party wanted to get their picture taken with me. Crazy right. Anyhow I guess they heard that I now ride for a team sponsored by Hangar 24 and Scott Manning Insurance.

I promised them a free quote and a growler. Lucky for them you can find both owners at the same place most nights Merry Christmas.

Post update: In addittion to the good driver and muli policy discounts. State Farm has a twin discount.

Merry Christmas !

I got my first Christmas card yesterday. The lohman's from Redlands win a free bottle of Sparkling apple cider. Lucky for the Lohman's the card read Merry Christmas.

I don't send cards but maybe I should. I could wear some khaki pants and a white polo at the beach. That would look nice. Maybe a green sweater around my neck. I bet the Palm springs guys have a holiday card at the top of the tramway. Hopefully they get a Trek in picture this time.

Just remember Happy Holiday is what terrorists say....Merry Christmas is what Chopper says and wishes you all. Next year look for my card , but for now Merry Christmas.

See you on the Seesaw Cindy !

....They knew that it was much more than a hunch. That this group would one day form a family, that's the day they all became the Brady brunch the....

Well that day is coming fast . No not Christmas. But The day that the Team Redlands and Possabilites merger becomes official.

The last few secret club rides and end of the year parties are being held. The old fort is being torn down and the kumbya web site dismantled.

So what will the too big to fail cycling team look like. What happens when you merge a bunch of Foul mouth cyclist with Team can I help you with that flat Andy ?

I can see Joy and JT building a house of cards to see who gets the team credit of $ 43.00 at the local bike shop or The Palm springs guys and breyer helping each other empty the RV crapper after a long day at Ontario. Gone will be the days for restroom dominance at Stells.

The new Team Redlands coming January 1st are you ready Alice ?
