Random encounter (DC content)
Does anyone know a girl who rides a brakeless Circle A in DC?
Apparently, I just met her father. After paying for my groceries, I was stuffing everything into my mess bag (now glad I went with Reload's courier size) and I guess it reminded the guy behind me of biking and his daughter because he made a comment like "That's the way to do it," then proceeded to tell me about her. He came outside, checked out my bike, and we talked about the Atlanta velodrome (he'd ridden it when it was new) and riding track bikes in the city.
It was funny that he seemed more concerned about her spending a ton of money on a custom bike than over her riding without brakes -- she must have skills. It was a really cool, random conversation.
...just thought I'd share; it made me smile.
