It's not all bad out on the road
There's the guy blowing leaves out of a flower bed who stopped the blower when I rode by so I wouldn't be covered in dust.
The motorist who slowed down to let me get around an open car door.
The telephone guy who was up a pole, probably freezing his @ss off in a rainstorm yesterday, who waved back as I rode by, definitely freezing my @ss off.
My boss who doesn't mind when I was a little late riding in after battling 25-30mph winds all the way.
(and I had started out in plenty of time, Pete!)
