Got a "Thank you" from a complete stranger after pulling him along the SGRT.
Was headed southbound from El Dorado Park, towards the power plants where the wind just screams right in your face. I caught up to two roadies, and tucked behind them as I needed a break from the pounding from the headwind. Their pace was a bit slower than mine, so after a mile or so I pulled ahead, put my hands in the drops, put my head down and toughed it out. As I reached the end of the trail where you have to exit at Marina Drive, I made a right turn, and I heard a voice call out "Thank you." I looked and saw it was one of the guys I had tucked behind earlier.
Very nice gesture.
