You're not the same rider I saw in january ...

... that's what my friend Mary told me, after riding with me after Cool Breeze. Is this a good thing, or a bad thing? I'm hoping it's the former.

Hmmmm . . . might want to ask the NorCal folks to chime in on this, as a lot of us SoCalers haven't met you and wouldn't be able to judge the changes in your cycling from Jan to now.

Did you not get a chance to ask Mary, "What do you mean by that?"

Actually, ironic as it may sound, more SoCal'ers have ridden with me than the NorCal BF members ... go figure ...

Well, how would you rate yourself now compared to how you were in January? (Let's say you were a 5 in January on a scale of 1-10, what are you now?)
