IT DOESN'T TAKE MUCH

TODD BROWN Bike Life


TONIGHT A LOCALLY FAMOUS PRO RACER JOINED OUR RIDE.  We'd never met, but I had followed his story battling cancer.  In fact, I thought he'd passed away because his updates from mutual friends weren't coming into my FB feed.  I saw his jersey, on the side was M. SCOTT.  I checked with Frank to verify it was who I thought it was.  Yep.  So when things slowed down I introduced myself.

Hey, you don't know me but I've followed your story.  It's great to see you out riding.

Thanks man.  I don't have much power yet.

We small talked a bit more.  Then he said, You have a nice pedal stroke, real smooth.

A simple compliment, and it felt pretty dawgawn good.  "I have a smooth pedal stroke!"  He didn't have to say that... but he did.  He'd taken a moment to say something nice that required thoughtful observation.

I see why everybody loves this guy.
