Northern California - norcal Missed Connections thread
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
This kind of post tends to get lost in the churn so I thought it might be fun to have a dedicated thread for "saw you on the road/trail" type messages. Not necessarily romantic but hopefully amusing...
I'll start -- Northbound san tomas / northbound Central Expy this morning 2/25 -- You were on a Rock Lobster w/fenders, me on my Jamis tourer. We traded pulls for a few miles and then after Bowers, you dropped me like I was a chubby kid running after the school bus. I made it to palo alto 3 minutes under par-- thanks! Same time tomorrow?

Too funny. I'll have lots of those "you pulled me but then beat me like a red-haired stepchild" once I start riding more.
Well, I met up with my fast friend again yesterday morning. I'm not ashamed to say I transferred my light over to my fast bike in hopes of running into him. It paid off too. I held up my end of the pulls and kept up until we parted ways. My HRM was whining loudly the whole time though, I bet that was amusing. 27mph @ 175 bpm. If I can learn to keep that up without dying I might be a threat someday :)

27mph... That's pretty good. How long were you cruising at that speed?
about 10 miles, from San Tomas / Payne to Central / Commercial Ave
