We always hear about cyclists being dissed, harassed, etc. How about some GOOD stuff- like encouraging moments which show hope for the future?
A few weeks ago I was out on a ride and I was passed by a car, the passengers were a dad and his son. The kid was about 13. As I passed them, I saw the kid looking at my bike, and then he stuck his head out the window and gave me a big grin and a thumbs up! I thought great, the kid's into bikes, maybe he has a GT and does mountain biking (mine's a road bike). Sometimes we see another guy with HIS kid out on road bikes- the kid is about 10 or so. The dad is obviously a pretty serious roadie or maybe a racer, and he and the kid are doing a pretty good clip!
I see that and I think at least the kids aren't sitting at home playing dorky video games or vampire games ans stuffing their faces with Cheesies and being little rug rats. It's always good to see and I always wave encouragingly at kids when I see them out on bikes- BMXing, whatever.
Any positive moments lately? Doesn't have to be about kids on bikes- just positive, bike friendly moments. Share with us!
