This prompted the man to yell and cheer even more. What have people been saying to you as they pass you by on your route?
I was riding home and waved a guy around me when the road cleared. He pulled up beside me and said you are going fast enough! Good job! He then slowed down and rode patiently behind me until he turned off. I thought for sure he was going to yell at me.
