When I started riding my bike last April I weighed in at 275# 11 months later I have lost 40 pounds and commute to work 30 miles round trip every day that I can. A couple of weeks ago I was riding my route to work when I happend upon a road cyclist climbing up a 3 mile hill I have to travel on my way to work. I was just riding my ride and eventually caught up to him at a light a few miles later. I think he was trying to complement me when he blurts out " You ride pretty good for a big guy" For some reason I was kind of offended by the remark so I replied " I am only going to get better as I lose weight you are about as good as you are going to get" He kind of chuckled at the come back and went about his ride. Was I out of line? should I have taken my compliment and peddaled on? Do any of you other guys get jabs from skinny guys while riding?
