I think people will know what I mean.
You're cycling along a bike path, and another cyclist is approaching. The get close - just about to go past and you give 'The Nod'.
Sort of wordless, 'Hello', 'Nice day', or whatever.
Most people seem to give 'The Nod' on the veloway (my main bike path) and some even give 'The Nod' accross 4 lanes of road.
In my experience commuters give 'The Nod' more than serious racers. The 'petrol bikes' don't give 'The Nod' at all! When I was on my electric bike I didn't get 'The Nod' as much - possibly because I was going so fast.
Do you give 'The Nod'? Do you get 'The Nod'?
If someone passes close by and greets me, I reply with a nod. Do not look for cyclists on the other side of the road.
Angus knows from the xmas pub event that if a cyclist is next to a locked bike, I am liable to chat to them, and invite them to join Adelaide Cyclists, etc.
Yes, there's certainly a 'like for like' thing that goes on.
Commuters more likely to respond to commuters.
Flat-bars more likely to respond to flat-bars.
Colnagos that only respond to other Colnagos
I reckon I'm more likely to get a respectful passing nod from 'pro' looking riders when I'm
on the rivet, or out of the saddle attacking an incline... But not if I'm schlepping along at
Why does there always have to be a Colnago dig?
I nod to everyone and say hi to who ever is in hearing distance......
Ahh, too easy.
I knew I'd get a bite from someone.
It's called jealousy Bec.
Same as those that always have a dig at people who wear Lycra (whatever that is).
PS: All my 'Bibs' and jerseys are made of Polyester and a bit of Spandex thrown in.
Like I say jealousy.
Us Colnago riders will wave to anybody, as I do !
My point precisely.
Just the jocks use the term to put people down !
