First of all, thank you for letting us be a guest of your fabulous county for our third summer. We appreciate every day we're away from the Arizona heat. Your summer is like our winter. My wife and I lease a place at the north end of the lake and take advantage of your wonderful recpaths. It's brilliant they are called "rec" paths and not just "bicycle" paths, since they are used to accommodate everyone.We both walk and bicycle on the path and have noticed something unusual. Nearly everyone riding a "racing" type bike is unfriendly. The walkers and the folks on "Pee Wee Herman" type bikes (like mine) nearly always responded to a "hello" or "good morning." To the racing bikes (you know, colored spandex), not even a grunt. Then it reminded me of a similar occurrence I had when riding a Harley. Every Harley rider will give the cool "wave" (must be to the side, about waist level, and for gosh sakes, not too much!). However, the "coolest" Harley rider would barely waste a wave on someone not riding a Harley. There's my point. I think "macho" is keeping some of those folks from acknowledging us. This actually cracks me up. Did it ever occur to them they are riding a "bicycle" and that they are just one handlebar basket away from being a nerd like me? Or, is that Spandex (made in China) causing a chemical reaction that makes people unfriendly? Lastly, I'm afraid it might be the incredibly small sliver of a seat exacerbated by the unnatural bent over position. I think this terrible position causes such discomfort to their man-muffins that they are in constant pain. They are barely able to release a grunt, no less a full "good morning." So, keeping this in mind, I forgive them and I'll keep on giving my one-sided greeting.
