Bike-commute day 51—to work

Tuesday, 12 July 2011.

As I made the corner after the west gate of Eastwood Park, I saw a cyclist at the bridge. Triathlon top and no helmet were two clues that indicated it was Retired Phil. I whistled, waved, and turned around to ride to the bridge.

But as I neared him, he raised a helmet. It wasn't Phil after all, but a new rider on the course today: Joe from Beavercreek. We rode together the Creekside Trail to the trestle, me leading a bit, used to my usually faster speed.
