Overheard two landscapers talk to one another in Spanish as I went past. "That's a cool machine, eh?" "Sure, but those are for old people."
They probably didn't know I could understand them.
I generally say hi to everybody, walkers and cyclists, etc. I get a lot more waves from others when I could barely get an acknowledgment while riding a DF bike. The best greeting was one from among the mostly DF cyclists in a group ride going in the other direction. He yelled across the busy road: "I like your machine!" He was the only one riding a recumbent bike. Hehe.
What do you call a cyclist who sells potpourri on the road? A pedaling petal-peddler.
