It’s nice to be out on a ride and recognize people, and be recognized.
Sunday, during the coffee ride, a couple cyclists came upon us and I heard, “Is that Dana?” Sure enough, Noreen, a gal from the women’s ride.
Monday night, on the way to the group ride, I saw a guy that I always see. He never used to wave and now he does. I think he recognizes my green/yellow bike and knows I wave so he waves back.
A little further down the road I recognized another rider, Noreen, as she was headed out for a ride.
Still further along, I saw Paul. I thought he should be joining us on the group ride and I assumed he was just out for a little warmup prior to the ride.
It’s a great feeling when you wave to a fellow cyclist and realize you actually know them. Better still is the feeling that they recognize you.
