Here I am 18 miles into my longest ride ever (21 is my max). I hear behind me coming up a couple of riders. so I move to the right and let em pass.. I say " good morning" . The older of the 2 says "We have been watching you for a while and I only have 3 things to say". I say " ride more?" He says "yea but no..." Then he says Bike shoes, Bike Shoes, Bike Shoes..." I smile and say thanks.. as I think to myself I am wearing MTB shoes clipped in. Then the old guy says watch my heel.. see more power for free." I smile and say "thanks.." Then he says "just keep riding its good to see more out here" as he and his friend pull away on their all carbon bikes with the best kit you can buy on.. As I watched them motor on (with ease I might say) all I can say is WOW.
