Now I will freely admit I am an oddity. I look a bit odd and I ride recumbents. I was a little surprised when I was flagged down while riding along Southend seafront today by a woman who was looking for 'one of you people'. I didn't take offence until I was informed that her Beaver group were doing their disability awareness badge and she needed 'one of you people' to talk to them. I tried not to sound too indignant when I told her that I was in fact able bodied and my recumbent trike was not an adapted mobility aid. She walked off, obviously affronted by my attitude and unwillingness to help. Those poor kids!
