Well Gina had more family business so I headed off alone on SART. Once I reached Imperial I got ready to head to the coast when I saw LewisAClark roll by. Man it was a stiff headwind today but I saw him blow by several riders. I managed to pull up behind him but stayed back for a bit in an attempt to go unrecognized ha ha! He did look back a few times but the shoulder glance didn't give me away. I'm thinking he figured I was one of the riders he rolled by earlier . It wasn't until he took a different path after Lincoln that he saw me, still not sure if he made me out or not since I was alone which is rare nowadays.
I saw Tammy and Alan at the HC U turn. Alan stopped above the underpass so we exchanged a few words. I heard my name called a couple of times. At first I thought it was the Big Man coming to take me away. Cmon, not while I'm enjoying a ride. But it turned out to be Alan thank goodness!
Somewhere down the road I was rejoined with LewisAClark so we pulled into the coast together after exchanging a few words. I'm sure it had to be about the stiff headwind. At times I was pushing hard and only doing 14.5 MPH! At the coast, a quick surprise visit with MTBLurker asking to have his picture taken (OK, not really!)
Jordan rolled up on his commuter not clear about my name. So he mentions that a few others know me as Jose. WHAT!!! OK, the cat is out of the bag. My real name is Jose. I just use Fred cause I'm a dorky bike rider ha ha! We chat for a bit about bikes and stuff
then decide to roll out after Alex2 appears. Crazy Alex2 on another one hundred miler as always. So he rides with us taking advantage of the nice draft created by Jordan an his commuter. Fat tires but the dude moves on that bike. Heck, I was happy, I got to set back enjoy the draft and take a few pics and video ha ha!
More pics in my blog too!
