Interesting experience last Saturday. I headed out on a beautiful morning. One of those where you just think, man, I'm glad I'm out riding. About one mile in I catch up to three people, two guys riding SS and one girl on a geared bike. I'm in a great mood and say, "Hey guys, how's it going." First thing out of one of the guys mouth was, "I bet you think your special cause you have gears." Hmmmm. "No," I replied. I do like gears but my little bro rides single speed too. Out of the corner of my eye, I could see them checking out my bike. It's an old Ibis Alibi. Well, "have a good one," I said, and started to speed up. About 10 yards in front of them I heard the girl say, "I know this is just killing you to ride slow, I give you permission to go kick his a$$." Hmmm. I was feeling pretty good so I thought, Bring it!!!! Needless to say, they were dropped. I probably put at least 20 minutes on the two guys but still. Where did that come from? I'm sure they thought I was just some poser wearing baggy shorts and a T-shirt. Not decked out in my lycra and sleevless jersey like they were. It did feel good to smoke them but I'm still a little irritated about the whole situation. Thanks for listening to me vent. Has anyone else ever had something similar occur?
