It’s how it should be: The Nod.
The “Nod.” It’s one of those little gestures – one of those signs of camaraderie that is ever so easy to do, ever so important when you’re out there on the road. Just a sign to those you are riding past that “Hey, we’re both on bikes. HI!” Very much akin to the “Wave” on a motorcycle – a sign that you are acknowledging your fellow rider. Simple … yet ever so important.
Allow me to demonstrate.
See? That was easy, fun, and made you feel good.
We’re a minority out there, being friendly to one-another, ESPECIALLY new cyclists is the only way we all can grow our sport/hobby/life.
If you see me on the paths/roads, return the nod please. Waves, fist pumps, and verbal expressions of how awesome we all are also also welcomed, and encouraged. 🙂
