Driving across the Market Street Bridge this morning, I spied a “senior” rider on one of those 10 speeds with the brake levers I wrote about.  She was in “be seen” mode, with a whippit flag and rear flasher.  What stuck out to me, was how she was laboring to pedal, with a very low cadence.  This on a busy four lane bridge with no effective berm.

First thought: too high a gear.  But as soon as I passed I saw it.  Her hips were moving a good four inches up and down with each rotation.  The bike is way too big – the seat is way too high.

So…if anyone knows this lady, help her out.  ‘just before 8:00, crossing the bridge, headed to Lemoyne.
