Today I was out for a bike ride, ya know, workin on my fitness & all, and decided to pause for a moment on the bridge over Shem Creek to watch the pelicans and dolphins there in the water. You and your friend on the road bikes came towards me and as you passed, you just HAD to be a negative, critical smart a$$. You made enough time to pull the silver spoon out of your mouth and make the snarky comment “nice bike” as you whizzed by. Now, see, I do not have a fancy bike….. I have a Huffy, and, well, I’m perfectly fine with that. It has 2 wheels and gets me from point A to B. See, I dont have a fancy schmancy bike b/c I chose to spend MY hard earned $650 on a roundtrip plane ticket to Europe for my hard earned 2 weeks of vacation and learn about other cultures. But ya know, a guy like you probably also makes fun of ‘non-perfect’ people working out at the gym and handicapped folks too…. How about trying to stop being such an elitist jerk and giving your fellow bikers a bad name….
