It must be spring. Yeah I know it was 35F this morning, but still new riders are out there.
What do you say, or do, when you see an old dude, you know someone over 50, struggling along with an old bike and looking like he's hurting?
This morning, I was so surprised to see this guy struggling and barely going 5 or 6 or 7 mph max, that I just safely passed and continued on. But I'm wondering if maybe there might be a better approach. On the one hand you have to admire the old guy for just being out there and pedaling. But on the other hand, you get concerned that his example might discourage others from giving biking a try.
If happens again, expect I'll at least say good morning. Any ideas of anything else that might be more encouraging?
