Met a nice guy in Santa Clarita today...

I was riding on the bike path on Soledad, just between the bowling alley and the Home Depot, along comes this guy on a black and white Orbea Orca, he's with the local velo club and his name was Glen. Nothing particularly news worthy to report, just that it was a nice sunny day and it's nice running into people enjoying their bikes...

I was on Soledad yesterday too, but I was feeling ornery, so it probably wasn't me.

As a noob it's always nice to run into the faster road nazis that are nice and willing to acknowledge your existence.

Name sounds familiar but not the bike. I've probably met him and just can't remember (always had a lousy memory ). Of course, you and I have to eventually run into each other Make sure you holler at me at the MetroLink station on the 28th. (Big guy, dark hair w/some grey in it.)
