On a recent ride I was looking back to see where my wife was. I "thought" I saw her back there but when she caught up it wasn't my wife. It was a gal I'm guessing who was in her 60's, not even trim and not really matching what I would call my "road cyclist stereotype". She looked every bit the loving grandma who would bring out a tray of amazing fresh baked cookies.
Now please understand, I'm a grandfather at the young age of 51! I take great pride in not looking the part - yet....
This gal blew me off her back in a hurry!! She was fully dressed in a great kit right down to the Sidi shoes! But where are the cookies?! I want some cookies!! LOL!!
She kicked my ass! I couldn't keep up with her 24mph + pace! It truly made me smile and made my day!
There's hope for us folks! If she can do it so can we!!
