"SHAMED," and I hang my head!
I have let the 50+ crowd down.
Today, on my Lemond BA, I was riding down a slight incline on a MUP, going right at 20 mph, thinking I was going along just fine.
Then without any notice, I see this hybrid passing me on the left, pedaled by a lady just going lickety-split, followed by a man (her husband?) also passing me on a hybrid.
Here I am, all folded up in a road bike position, and here they are, sitting as upright as you will ever see someone, going by me as if I was standing still. And these were not spring chickens, either.
This pair didn't slow for curves, nor for what I consider to be blind corners - nope, they just pedaled on through at top speed.
OK, I increased my speed a bit, and managed to stay behind them and to gain on a slight hill. No need to pass, as I was nearing the end of my ride, and was to turn off the trail shortly.
Can the 50+ forum forgive me?
When can I raise my head once again?
