|I've been noticing this a lot on the road (and I'm not hyper-sensative), when I encounter a roadie, he gives me the "you're not worthy" look, and when I pass the casual guys on their mountain bikes, they give me an indignant look. Can't we at least be CIVIL??|

|I'm new to road biking, and it's the first time in many years back on a bike, so I'm all grins when I'm out for a ride, waving and saying good morning to everyone I see, because it's FUN. The only people I get attitude from are some of the guys dressed head to toe in a shop's uniform. I don't think they see me as a threat (how could they?), but they have their game face on.
So if you see some guy rolling by you on a kermit the frog green bike giving a wave, wave back already.

|I like that much better than thinking they're jerks.
Since our rides are not for training purposes, I guess we're allowed to smile, huh? :)
