Charlie and I met at our regular South Gate Spot. He said he didn't have a goal for today's time... but I could tell he was gonna go for it. We talked about cycling shoes and cell phones. I hung on for a while, dropped back and caught back a few times, and finished about 1 minute down. At Junction I saw local cycling celebrity Cathy - in pursuit of another million foot vertical trophy... she honored me with a selfie.
On the way home, some jerk in a diesel pickup rolled coal on me. I decided it wasn't worth chasing him down for an environmental lecture, and let him go to his MENSA book club meeting.
