I did a little research and found out that The Bicycle Man is actually the brother of a woman I know. Given where I’ve seen him the most, I guessed at where he lives, which is right down the street from where she lives. Since I saw her last weekend, I came right out and asked “Who is the Bicycle Man?”
His name is Tom and he is a little “emotional” at times, although he is better than he used to be. Some days are better than others. He has a job locally, and is obsessive about exercise. If you saw him, you’d see that he is pretty lean.
Anyway, either I passed him on a “good day” or perhaps he is a bit more sociable with other cyclists. Next time I’ll give him a “hello Tom”… baby steps.
