Strava/FB Burn!!

My friend Nic is new to mountain biking and was so proud of himself for beating my Strave time on a segment that he posted about it on Facebook. I responded with the following. Yeah, it's not the most flattering pic of me (I'm considerably lighter now), but really enjoyed calling him out. I mean, he's 30 and I'm 55. And well, look at him!

    LOL! Motherf*cker posted on FB that he beat you on a Strava segment??
  • Yeah, but it's been two way! I had been giving him he'll for getting schooled by 'PopPop'.

    Consider it a compliment, PopPop! The young'un was proud of himself for besting his master! Own it!!

    For us guys of that certain age and willing to put what we got to the test, I say (insert just a quiet smile only), knowing nearly all those years younger will not be able to do what I just did when if they get those extra years.
  • I'm not 'all that' on a bike, but young, new riders are generally surprised at how hard mountain biking can be. So I enjoy taking advantage of them during the learning curve. And when they aspire to be faster than me, I respond with, 'wow, faster than the old fat guy! Aiming high, huh?'

    Yup, good show! I'm rather competitive but laugh when college team riders chase after my segments. Sure must be a lot of glory for them to take away a KOM from a fat 50 year old.
