One time last year on my commute from inner city Baltimore south to near 
BWI, a motorist gave me a thumbs up as I crested a hill, made my day!

As for riding with other bike commuters, once in a while I'll meet up with 
a co-worker and sometimes I'll catch up or be passed by another cyclist, 
but for the most part I'm out there on my own and loving it!


P.S. This year my commutes are on my QB.
