Ed. Note: If either of these are you, please email [email protected] so I can put you in touch with OP. PoPville is not affiliated with either party, please proceed with any potential connection at your own risk using caution as you would any online encounter. For those curious about past missed connections, some have been made and when possible I’ll try to update when/if more are made. The MC at the Tidal Basin was found, but sadly is unavailable.

“Dear PoPville,

I was riding my bike on the W&OD trail last Sunday midday when a man flew past me on the left. He settled back into the right lane and I briefly drafted, admiring his killer calves. As he sped away he called out “nice jersey!” and I noticed that, stretched taut over his rippling back muscles, was the same jersey I was wearing but in a lovely blue-grey. Rapha-man, you raced up that hill faster than my voice could carry … but I’d love to grab a post-ride beer and discuss the latest in cycling fashion! Or at least what you do on leg day.”


“Dear PoPville,

Possible missed connection – You were the cute and helpful sales associate at Fleet Feet in Adam’s Morgan. You sold me New Balance running shoes on 8/14 and were gracious when my 3 friends made fun of your Hokas. Would love to meet up!”
