Most awe-inspiring sighting of other riders

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I'll never forget 1 of the recent trips I took to Italy, we were in the Dolomites mountain ranges in northeren Italy, and there were bicyclists out on the mountain passes, riding up the steepest grades like they were strolling around the neighborhood. We were in a car, and it was not happy getting out of first into second gear kinda steep grade.

Nothing that cool, but I did see two guys climing a wicked hill in CT the other day. I wanted to beep the horn as encouragement but figured they'd think I was being a jerk and telling them to get off the road.

I can only imagine what that hill felt like. It's not a good dream either.
