I admire the time these guys spend on thier bikes, and I pride myself in being able to cross divides and communicate with people, be it religious divides, cultural or otherwise. You'd think I could connect with LDS missionaries guys on a bicycle level. I've tried and tried to get the conversation away from the mission and get it to bikes and cycling. Find a common bond if you will. After all, I have an almost religious connection to my bike, and if they ever want to win me over then they are going to have to indulge me in this respect.
Anyway I thanked them for being good sports and posing for my camera. I really do wish them well on their journey.
