A Brush with Peleton and Professional Writer Fame
On our 75 mile ride in the Napa Valley yesterday
Midland and I saw Ted King, a pro on Liquigas-Cannondale and Bicycling Magazine columnist.
We saw an oncoming cyclist in a full Liquigas kit on Oakville Cross Road and exchanged brake hood finger waves.
Midland said: "Hey, Ted King!" in a trying to be funny way.
I said: "Yeah, that guy must really be a Liquigas fan to spend the kind of money you have to spend to get a full kit."
Then we see on Strava that it was really him!! http://app.strava.com/activities/26844851#
The New Hampshire native son must be enjoying his off season with a trip to wine country.
I think he may actually have been giving me a long, neck craning "Do I know that guy?" look because of my kit and bike.
I ride a black Felt and was in a vintage Slipstream jersey
My 2007 Felt is what they rode, in black, back when they wore this jersey and Slipstream was a U.S. only domestic team.
I am proud that I exchanged a wave with a strong rider on that great team.
He can write too. I like his column for Bicycling Magazine: King Me
These two especially spoke to me as a double century rider.
How to pin a number like a Pro
I get admiring compliments on my number technique.
He takes on a Double Century
Someday I would like to do the: 200 on the 100
