"Selling out is the new keepin' it real"

Saw that little gem on another blog and thought it worth posting....

Had an interesting run-in with a fellow cyclist the other day...  went out for a spin 'cause the timing was right.  nice day, sunny and warm-ish (wool and knees).  Rode up to Wasatch via backroads and ran into a guy headed the same way.

Now I'm not one to judge but he was kitted out in REIs's finest + a sunglass rearview.  It was about 55 deg and he had on booties.  Some people get cold so I wasn't sayin' a thing.  As I eased past him, I made a pleasant comment about us being able to ride on a weekday at 1-ish...the guy gave me a wide berth and look like I shit on his cookie so I kinda went up the road.  I missed a turn and backtracked a block only to see my friend again...this time I said, "...shoulda followed you 'cause you look like you knew the way"...same look as last time and he replied.."...yeah and you should learn how to ride a bike".

Those of you who know me know that I'm no pro but I've ridden a couple of times....and yeah, I could still learn a couple of things about riding but I'm not gonna learn them from that fuckstick.  My buddy Brian said, "..that's what you get for bein' nice, shoulda told the guy to get the fuck outta the way...".  Words to live by.
