Been cycling to work for weeks, and not seen 1 commuter on my travels(morning and evening commutes), then all of a sudden today, i see a fellow roadie on the opposite side and he nods and smiles, COOL i thought, so i did the same back( riding through Morriston swansea) then shortly after a guy on a motorbike (some big 1000cc machine) comes towards me and does the biker nod at me......i felt very privialaged today, and may it continue

I passed (on the other side of the road) several groups of roadies today, and all waved/called a greeting. It must be the sunny weather!

Mind you, I couldn't help noticing that I seemed to be always travelling into the wind, whilst they were travelling with it. They were probably laughing their Shimano socks off at me!

No commuters seen but a fair amount of roadies. It was quite funny I passed one guy, I was riding into a head wind up a slight incline & then 10 miles we met again going the opposing way & he shouted in a friendly sarcastic tone "you made this look easy mate... you're a b***erd!"... I may have made it look easy but my HR was 90-95% HRmax :biggrin:
