Talking It's Happening more and more often... Being recognized...

Today as I was leaving the local buffet place for lunch (w/Mark VII in tow), another person recognized me.

Him "Say, I see you all over the place... you sure ride a lot" (friendly tone, smiles)

Me "Sure, I don't have a car." (ditto)

Him "Yeah, I see you all the time on the freeway, I drive an old white pickup, but I don't honk, cause I don't want to startle you."

Me "Thanks!!! Sorry, gotta go..."

I got a big smile out of that...

Sorry, gotta go...
Riding my bike is MY pursuit of Happiness!!!

Yeah, I get almost exactly that all the time - random strangers telling me where they've seen me. For me the crucial part of that is knowing that I am seen. Love it. Yesterday a fellow on a shiny new red Trek pulled up beside me, matched my leisurely pace and said "You inspired me to get this bike!" Love that even more.
