reminds me of one commute home. I was attacking one of two large climbs on the route. attacking is too strong, I was seated & just working it. not fast, just working it. I knew the hill well & it wasn't a problem, especially not on my roadified hybrid triple. but some girls in a car going down the hill, approaching their red light, shouted out: "woo hoo! keep going! you can do it! yeah!"

on a converse occasion, as I was passing a line of cars, someone yelled out: "FU Yuppie!"
