Whats with Sundays?

Well I'm starting to notice a pattern, on Sunday if I were to pass someone and wave or say hi, I'd get a nice responce back, but on any other day, I can do the same, and not even get a responce from the person, even if they are looking right at me and are a few feet away.

What's with Sunday?

No idea, here pretty much no one says hi anyway, even if I greet them. Bastards. On a serious note, I do get more responses on Sundays aswell, today I just went for some urban assault in full gear (helmet, gloves, shinguard) and I see this guy with a street bike, sweet, DJ2s and other parts for street. When I passed him I said hi, figuring he was into riding aswell. Not only does he say hi, he stops, shakes my hand, asks me my name, asks if I'm into street/DJ and even asks me if I wanted to go to the skatepark. I had to refuse the offer, I was in a hurry but thanked him and I was on my way.

It's usually the W/E warriors around here that act like Snobs to me. I've just about quit speaking to other people 1st. Mostly I ride during the week anyway, and the people I meet are usually ones I've seen before. I figure the "white collar" crowd is more into riding on the W/E's, which is fine with me....

Sundays are for cruising. Everyother day is for training. Like I have on one of my workout shirts, "PISS-OFF!! I'M WORKING OUT!!!".

The trouble with them is that Monday is not far behind.

Sunday is just a special day for some of you. For me, everyone is just says "Hi" all the time, and every time I ride I will get pulled over and asked for directions by some lost hiker.


And Mondays scare me

Sunday a lot more cyclists come out I find. Sunday morning, hit some roads or single track and you're bound to find the most cyclists then at any other time of week. Sunday 10ish to 12 ish is usually the slot.

Well, the Sundays are experiencing issues with the pivots.

If not that, I have no clue on what you like on your sunday.

I figure more people go for casual rides on sundays on the other days its people that are trying to race/workout/go fast.
