What, no wave?
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.
