Commute home - ok NOW I'm sore! Started off slow because during my mid morning walk I was feeling it - about halfway through felt better and picked it up - a guy on the causeway passed me and I got competitive and tried to catch him a vain effort, but - I did manage to speed up enough that I finished about the same time as I did this morning. I'm also doing my "say hello" test and so far I gotta say other cyclists are not as nice as runners. I came across a few folks today, I'd wave at some but most didn't even acknowledge me back. Good going Davisites! I don't let it get me down, with every pedal I get closer to running again and every commute is money saved and calories expended . Thanks for reading !

    You know, I was just thinking on my long weekend ride that cyclists are MORE friendly than runners! All the cyclists I saw waved, but very few of the runners I've seen lately even acknowledge my existence. "Hey you! I know you saw me a block away! At least give me a little nod!"

    the runners have zero excuse not to wave! On the bikes though, if someone is in the drops and really cranking it, it can be tough to disengage and wave. Runners? Just wave that water bottle - your hands are out there anyway! I will continue to do unscientific testing on this, and hopefully shame the running and cycling communities into being more friendly ;)

    the farther you are on the trail, the friendlier the people are. the friendliest trail I've ever been on was Emigrant trail in Truckee, everyone one said hello how are you, have a great run etc.. with smiles on their face you know they meant it. Local trails are the best. No Tahoe tourists who don't even know what On Your left means.

    @Jose, I've noticed (and done it myself) that cyclists in the drops just sort of stick out their fingers a bit so the thumb and palm are still on the bar. It works!

    @Ivy, I discovered a corollary to your theory: the worse the weather, the more likely runners are to wave. I think it's an acknowledgement of "Yeah, we're crazy alright!"
