|Hot Summer Ride|
I've been riding mostly with a group of Local Bike Club people and enjoying the camaraderie. Mostly we stay together, like today, but sometimes a few of the faster blokes take off, and so I chase after. Soon we're spread out over many miles. Some riders get discouraged, give up, and turn around and head home.
Tommy, green jersey and far right - no matter what we're doing - has to be first. If I ride up next to him, he tries to go a little faster, and then a little faster. Before you know it, I take a quick glance over my shoulder, and we've dropped everybody by a mile of two.
Today I didn't play that game and just hung back and rode with everyone - discovering how cool and different everyone is and sees things. That seemed the order of the day. Also, it was very very muggy! I quickly went through two water bottles - something I've not done in awhile.
Anyway, there's always a Tommy. Tommy can go way up front by himself.
