Hey Jim, it was good to see you 2 enjoying this nice day. I rode 51 miles in all. Lots of folks out today. Much like seeing all the same car as ones own I counted at least 10 Sevens. On the climb up Baker Bridge road I got enveloped by a group of riders just inches away. It didn’t give me much room to maneuver. It kinda felt like being at a party I wasn’t invited to and didn’t want to attend. As the hill caused the group loose steam and spread out I held my line when a large enough gap opened up I drifted left and pedaled until I overtook the leader and made sure that didn’t happen again. A few minutes later as I was sitting upright sipping water I heard coasting hubs getting close again. I caged the bottle and pumped my legs opening a gap that ensured they didn’t have a chance, otherwise it was the best ride of the year.
