After class today I decided to hit the Waterfront Trail on a whim. It was a great day for a longish ride (10 km) and I was feeling great. On my return leg I ended up riding with two kids (probably around 12-1)5 on their bikes, we passed each other a coupe of times. Finally one of the kids timidly challenged me to a race. I told him "you'll probably win but OK." I meant it too. While it was a pretty close for a while I beat him handily. This little incident reminded me I'm not actually an old man, and I'm actually in my physical prime, beating prepubescent kids is not that impressive.... Lesson learned.
