My commute home from work is a vertical climb from downtown to the top of a hill above the city. There are other ways to get home on my bike that are more meandering, but I like the direct route. One of the perks is the almost daily thumbs up and smiles I get from people passing me in cars. They recognize the challenging climb and boost me up with their encouragement.
How can we recognize the challenging climb that others are facing and give them a “thumbs up” along the way?
