Just a tiny bit of gloating . . .
After my single track this morning, I rode my mtn bike w/panniers and my back pack to Sprouts for some fruit. Got about 30 lbs, which included cantaloupe, etc. and fully loaded the bike and back pack up.
There was a dad and a 12-year-old son also on bikes in the store and we happened to be loading our bikes at the same time - they just had a little. I noticed a bit of a "You are a really old guy" attitude from them, despite my attempts at being friendly.
So, they left a bit before me, taking the same trail. However, I caught them and zoomed by them uphill like a bat out of he!! and did I give them THE LOOK!!
Probably just a figment of my imagination, but it WAS fun!!
