Gotta love it

Beautiful day in So Cal, I'm on.. I haven't ridden for a while, well rested, on my long route. Look down wow! pushing 2nd gear up this hill I usually need 1st. Feeling groovy. From no where I hear this whoosh and whirring of gears, We'll call him fine fast freddie... on his blue bike, with his matching blue outfit and blue shoes...ALL the *right* gear I'm sure *BLOWS BY ME* on the climb like I was sittn up on jacks. I go a few more feet and he is gone over top and outta sight. Humbled but still a great ride on a great day. Inspired.
SOME day, that will be me. Some day, I will blow past someone on a climb
