Small World

Way before I met John, he was junior cyclist; he lived and trained in Bishop, CA. John was friends with a guy named Bill (and his brother Mike) who drove them to bike races prior to John having a driver's license (he was 15 years old at the time).
Fast forward 22 years later, I came to know of this "Bill in Mammoth" through John and their childhood adventures. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be cycling (for one and secondly) with Bill's wife through Red Rock Canyon. I had not made the connection until I was riding my bike next to her. What a small world it is!
I had heard so much about her through my friend Kaelin who had introduced us. I also knew that she is a pro triathlete but it took a while for my brain to crank before I realized our degree of separation.
The three of us rode together for a couple hours, about 39.80 miles--through the Red Rock scenic loop, past Blue Diamond to Route 160 and back to Dunkin' Donuts where we met Saturday morning. It was a gorgeous day and a nice bike ride for so many reasons. :-)
