Ed. Note: If either of these are you, please email [email protected] so I can put you in touch with OP. 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!”
