Have any of you ever been riding a bike outside and had someone throw something at you?
I had the incredible experience this afternoon of having a teen (who obviously thought he/she was pretty clever) drive past me and throw ice water or Sprite or something on me as I was riding along the side of the road...complete with paper cup (litterbug!). If I hadn't been at the tail end of a mostly-uphill five-mile ride, I might have tried to pedal faster in order to get the license plate number. (Not sure what I would have done with it, other than call a friend who's a state policeman to see if they could scare the person by threatening a littering fine or something.)
I mostly felt indignant. I certainly wasn't hurt, and truth be told, it felt pretty refreshing on my bare legs, but still...I just have a hard time believing people are really that moronic. I consoled myself with the thought that I was getting a good cardio workout while he/she was probably getting fat on McDonald's food. A petty triumph, but I'll take it.
