First, here's a great post on Sean from fellow commuter and blogger Todd Nelson!
Now back to cycling: Sean and I had a great ride yesterday (Saturday) up and over the hills to Tracy and then up Coral Hollow to Tesla. Somehow we missed most of the rain and finished off February nicely. Sean rode several 250 mile plus weeks and finished this short month off with over 1,100 miles under his belt.
We had an interesting crew on our ride...Olympian George Mount and several of his Dino friends, many ex-racers from the 70's. In particular we celebrated Nikola Farat's 83rd birthday. So encouraging to see an octogenarian still riding strong! We also were joined by Terry Shaw, riding strong with a heart transplant. It just goes to show how much can be endured when the will is there.
By the way we later discovered that Nikola was only 82. He owes us one!
We finished the ride off with some good Mexican food and some strong espresso. I am learning that Sean really likes his coffee!
