Anybody know George & Greg from Pennsylvania?
« on: January 20, 2023, 01:53:15 am »
During my ride on Bicycle Route 66 in May 2022, I had the pleasure of meeting the two characters pictured — George and Greg from Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. We saw each other several times over a few days in New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma. We enjoyed telling stories and sharing experiences at convenience-store stops and while riding together. I never thought to suggest that we exchange contact info. If you happen to know them, please let me know here or ask them to post a reply. I’d like to hear how the rest of their ride went. … I mention our encounters on the May 5 and May 7-9 entries in my online journal: https://sites.google.com/view/richardsride/new-mexico/day-35-may-5

Glad you had a great tour!

If you have not already done so, you might look at the journals over at CycleBlaze and CrazyGuyonaBike.  Also, post on BikeForums.  If you are super eager, you could email some of the (non-racing) bike clubs in PA.

Tailwinds, John

Thanks, John! I’ve come up empty on Crazy Guy on a Bike and CycleBlaze and with every kind of Google search I could think of. I don’t think they were the posting and journaling types. 😊 BikeForums is a good idea!

Hi Richard, you found me! This is Greg.  One of our Warmshowers hosts on the trip let us know you were looking for us.  We finished our ride on May 28 in Chicago.  It was a great ride.  Yes, I remember our leapfrogging with you for several states.  Surprised how long it occurred.

Hope you’re doing well.  I’ll let George know you’re in touch.
