What, no wave?

by gbsmith4

Was out riding this morning.  A beautiful day: bright, sunny, a bit cool, but hardly any wind.  My effort was squarely in the “leisurely” category.

Now, when I’m riding anything other than “all-out” I try to wave to any rider I pass.  I figure you’re a rider, I’m a rider, we’re all in this together, so why not be friendly.

Sadly my response is usually no response.  No flick of the wrist, no nod of the head, not even a wink.  Nothing.  And I’m not talking about the folks going 150% on some snot-inducing interval.  I’m talking about folks riding fairly slow.

And forget about amateur wannabe-pros ignoring me.  Grandmas on cruisers regularly brush me off!

Honestly, I can’t figure it.  But, I’m not going to stop waving.
