These committed cyclists work for the same company and ride Lookout Mountain together when they can. I had chatted with Henry last year and remembered him and our conversation, but was not sure that I had met his compatriots. Henry, Dennis and Jason are all from California and Sarah has been in Colorado fro three years, hailing originally from Guatemala. Now that she lives here, she is interested in solo bike packing. All three men have raced or are still racing. Jason, who turned 40 the day after we talked, broke the 30 minute barrier on this particular day, riding a 29:50.
