I went out for my usual after work ride on Empire Mine Rd today. I was debating whether I wanted to do another lap on EM or hit the hills in one of the nearby neighborhoods. I decided to leave it in the hands of fate. If another rider came along on my return, I'd follow them for a second lap - otherwise I'd go do some hills.
And along came Spiduhman! Okay, I didn't know that until after I'd introduced myself. Turns out, we'd run into each other one afternoon as I was commuting home too.
So Spidey... I think you need to get out on some of the BF rides on the weekend. Next time Taxi is doing a Marin ride, you should be there. :)

I need photos so I can recognize BF folks if I see them. It's hard enough we all have two names.
I don't know that I've ever been on Empire Mine Rd and not seen that helmetless blond gal that mashes big gears.

I know Spiduhman said
"I'm "slightly" overweight, wear a silver Bell helmet, often with a highvis cover, and almost always a red jersey, and yeah, I'm over 50!"
So I was out on morning on the way to work and a guy going the other way matched this exactly. I did a U turn and went to say "Hi"
Turned out it wasn't Spiduhman, and I felt like a dolt.

I did not see the helmetless girl, although I often do.
I don't think Spiduhman is overweight. :)

II don't think Spiduhman is overweight. :)
Thanks for that!
Pleasure to meet you V!
Mah "real" name is Tom; oops! forgot to mention that...
Would like to tag along on a BF ride sometime, though vintage 1985 Myata 310 is a bit short of hillgears...

You mean there's someone else, besides me, that doesn't wear a helmet when riding a bike in the Bay Area?!!!!??? And they're female? My heart, my heart! 8^)
