I think you blasted by me right about at the golf course before the Big A today... would have been right about 3:55 pm or so. I think I was toddling along in the 18-20 mph range and you, uh, blasted by. (On your left! Vroooom)
You can see where I cranked it up to 28 to catch up so I could say hi, but then I realized there's no way I could hold a conversation at the pace you run, so I dropped myself. I started in Costa Mesa today at the inlaws and commuted back home with a detour to Yorba, but I didn't see you fly by in the other direction either.
Really not a lot of roadies out on SART today despite the rather awesome weather.
Weird, I don't recall seeing anybody at the bridge. I also forgot to look for your signature saddle bag. I started riding at 2:50, so about 1 hour in for me, so that had to be you - I didn't get passed by anybody else all day, mostly just recreational riders on the trail. I had a sort of orange LA fun ride jersey on.
Not a lot of guys out there on solid black Specialized bikes with deep rims and a powertap rear hub (I did notice that when I caught up to you and then gave up the chase).
I was starting to think there wasn't much of a tail wind until I turned around at Yorba Park... and then I realized that yes, it was pretty stiff!
You know when I saw you I felt like I'd seen you in a beanz video, but after a year or two of watching beanz videos I've probably seen just about everybody in them. I think you were in one just a few weeks ago from the GMR ride.
That wind is always kinda tough once I turn around at green river, seems like the SART never gets a break from it (at least during the few hours I ride - during my kids naptime). Before I had a power meter the wind would beat me down me mentally every time. Now I kind of enjoy it, breaks up some of the monotony of riding the SART 3 times a week.
