    Saw Lance Armstrong on Latigo Cyn.

    A week ago I was riding my motorcycle up Latigo Cyn. and passed a cyclist that looked like Lance. He had the Lance haircut, black socks, yellow jersey and was wearing no helmet. Actually the helmet was on his handlebars.

    I figured, nah, it can't be.

    Then I read this morning that Lance and Matthew McConaughey had rented a house over the holidays on Latigo and that they both would ride Latigo frequently.

    Lance would descend Latigo, then climb Latigo to the top, then descend it again and re-climb it again in the time it took McConaughey to go down and back up once.

    Don't you wish you had been on your bike?

    I wonder how many of us Lance has passed where he's thought "Is that a Bike Forumer?"

    Latigo Canyon is off of PCH north of Malibu. Lovely climb, but since people have houses on Latigo Canyon Road there's a lot more traffic than on GMR, for example.

    Sure, why not. And my theory is he is a lurker on here but too shy to join on one of our rides.

    Latigo is usually quite deserted except for the sportbike (moto) guys. I rode it Xmas day and saw exactly
    1 car and 2 cyclists, all going the opposite way.

    I did notice a number of angels hovering over one of the houses along the way. Must have been the one Lance rented.

    Oh, he could handle us, but Brandy would drop him going up to the lifts....

    it has been like 18 months since his last Mr. 'Serious' ride... maybe we could get him to come down on Saturday....

    Forget it. I'd be dropped for sure with you, George Vargas and Lance along. Although, the view from the back would be unbelievably sweet.

    I've passed him a few times I think. (one of the things about living in Austin). One of my teammates rode with him solo for 10 miles or so last year. Just ran into him on the road and said he'd always wanted to meet him. Everyone I've said who has met him says he's very approachable and pretty friendly. Which is nice because a lot of what we hear about him portrays him as such a major jerk.

    Also I'm fairly certain I rode past team Disco going the other way a couple weeks ago. Wimps were going with the wind. ;D

    Mean people are like slinkys. They're really not worth much but still are rather entertaining to watch tumble down the stairs.

    Up or down, its a great road. Very twisty. There's a 180 hairpin that drops two stories. We enter that at almost 40mph on skates, and slide the turn to slow. Its pretty intense. Two days ago, two of us trained up (like a roller coaster) and shaved 25 seconds off a single skater time trial time.

    latigo hairpin

    Lance, if you're out on Sundays after 2pm, we're out there.
