Topic - Do they know you're racing?

Kemics - on 05 Mar 2013
....Asked my girlfriend after I wobbled into the house on shaking legs covered in sweat. Sure in my recent and devastating victory over another commuter I knew: "Oh they know. They know".

So basically I commute around 15 miles a day on my road bike. I generally try and cycle fairly quickly. With an office job it's the easiest way to get exercise each day, so usually treat it like a bit of a workout.

(there are a few usual suspects who share a similar commute route to me) If I see someone else on a road bike cycling fast in the same direction, I do two things:

1: Maintain calm outward composure.
2: Cycle as fast as I possibly can.

Am I the only one who does this? If someone overtakes you on a ride do you continue at your pace...or do you throw down? ...Am I the only one racing?

*note: Riding quickly but safely, so no running lights etc
