    Anyone know a guy with long grey hair that rides a green Waterford and is from Mass?

    Hi,
    we were on the last day of our vacation when another cyclist pulled up
    beside us. He had long hair and a beard, a Magellan GPS, a nice Waterford
    with brifters. He had front panniers, but not rear.

    Anyway, we have a nice conversation. He had a lot of miles to cover, and out slow
    pace didn't cut it, so he took off after a while. Later I wondered if he was a BF member.
    We are as gods, we might as well get good at it.

    No, but I'm an aging longhair with streaks of gray.

    Interestingly, today, while out for a ride before work, I happened upon an bearded gray longhair. I didn't catch the bike, but there was a Brooks saddle and a set of four bright yellow Ortleib panniers.

    I had pannier envy.

    Anyway, he was from somewhere on the coast of Oregon, heading for somewhere on the coast of New England. We had a nice ten-minute chat. Keep an eye out, he's coming your way!
    My two favorite things in life are libraries and bicycles. They both move people forward without wasting anything.

    Lucky for me, I work at a library and bike to work.
