Oh! Oh! I got a compliment yesterday from a stranger!

So I met up with some friends I do some business with at a beach in Chicago and I rode down there. Well the beached closed so I headed home and passed some of the local hooligans and ne'er-do-wells who were labeling passers by with nicknames and such based on their appearance.

I was called "Lance Armstrong". Granted not my first choice but it was better than "fat guy on a little bike" which I have not so lovingly gotten before.

I should have offered to race them (they ALL had some nice bikes for being in their teens..... ) bike for bike but didn't think of it till after I was on my way. Maybe next time I will and end up with a nice single speed or other road bike.

I look like gorilla on my bike. Someday I'm hoping to see my bike when I ride one day.

Don't feel bad, last year when I was heavier I would tell people I looked like a circus bear on a tricycle!
