my new sig
so we're cruising through central park last sunday on our distance ride...
beautiful weather, and it's packed with pedestrians, roller bladers, weekend riders, and the like. our pack, about 7 or so, is picking and weaving our way through the mess so we can get out of the park, and back into traffic - this is one of those rare occasions when traffic seems safer than not.
anyway, as we pass a father and his young daughter, giving her a *w i d e* berth (she's probably all of 5 years old), he yells at her, "watch out, [little tracy], those are the bikes that will kill you!"
had a good chuckle at that one. she'll forever be afraid of track bikes, and i'm secure in knowing that i ride one of 'those bikes' that kill people. sweet.
