he bicycle looks to be fully loaded, the first other camping bicycle I've ever come across during my trips out here. The rider rings his bell and waves as he passes downward at hummingbird speed.

It would have been fun if he had stopped for a chat, but the hill is so much fun to ride down that one doesn't want to stop!
