I have been corresponding with him this week and pointed him the MBL site so he could sample a little MPLS bike culture. He apparently liked it, because he sent me a message today pointing to his blog, with a post about MBL, among other things.
I've also been invited to look him up the next time I find myself in Barcelona. He's got an invitation from me to ride around MPLS as well. It would be really wild if either of us ever followed up on this.
