    I hit the low 40s (mph) on my way home every work day. No special skills are required -- just a modest hill and a bike that rides reasonably true.

    i think you are reading too much into these interactions. on the only mup that i ride routinely, i also tend to gesture at the bike symbols and happily quite a few people "get it" and move over.
