Passed an electric scooter going up a long climb!

The best thing happened this morning not only did I ditch my Monday morning meetings for a ride but on my return leg I have to climb up a long and fairly steep 2K hill. There is quite a bit of residential development in the area so there are always people around. Today as I was just coming under the HWY bridge I saw a person on an electric scooter pull out of a side street. What a motivator!! I put my head down and gave it all I had trying to catch him by the lights at the top of the hill. Not only did I catch him I passed him about 300ft before the lights. Yelling passing on your left to a guy on a scooter was priceless!

BTW: I'm still really new to biking so little things like this really amuse me.
