Funny Experience of the Day
Had an experience funny enough to share today. I was riding up a local climb and passed a guy - he was amazed and asked how fast I was going - about 9 mph. When I got to the top, I stopped for a while and was enjoying some food. He eventually made it to the top and asked if I used Strava and if so, what rank I was on the climb. I told him my rank was about 100. Then he said there was a local guy that has the fastest time on every segment in the area. He said his name was Calm or something - then he spelled it out - K-O-M. He was wondering how this guy could be the fastest on every segment. I thought this guy was kidding - but he was serious. I didn't correct him, but just about peed in my bibs on the way down the climb from laughing.

If you could enjoy food at the top, that was no climb.

4.3 miles with an average grade of 7% - I would call it a good climb.

My funny experience of the day came when I entered an Instagram contest, in which I uploaded a bunch of photos with the hashtag #MyBikeTakesMe. For example, #MyBikeTakesMe to a foggy forest:

When I was done, I realized that I'd mistakenly entered the hashtag as "#MyBileTakesMe."

You should have totally correct the poor guy. Although, he might figure it out one day if his name ever becomes Kom.

Laughing at someone for lack of knowledge and not correcting them is not funny. It's sad.
