“Nice frame!”, a person on the trail shouted out to me as I negotiated two playful dogs. I really would rather converse with the dogs, usually. But this time I wanted to be social. Or at least try. I have tried lately.
“Thanks, it’s awesome”, as I reluctantly came to a stop to engage in a 7 AM chat at the Glen Lake Park trails. I was doing skills training … doing corners. So stopping wasn’t breaking “the plan” too much.
“I have a Lynskey frame … yea, they make that frame”, the person said pointing to my frame.
It is funny how I can go into a situation with an open mind to only react in a bad way. But I do. It is like corners where you just have to react. Me? I turned around and rode away.
