So, I've laminated the fact that I really like participating in the Ride of Silence. Jim does a great job of organizing this event. I was in a rush heading to the City Beach and forgot my camera. Did get one shitty pic with my camera phone, but not even worth posting.
No worries, as I counted 50 people assembled for the ride. Jim gave his speech and the ladies Team Laughing Dog racers lead us out on our route. I noticed a lot more red arm bands (meaning rider was hit by a car at some point in their life) than previous years. I was happy to be sporting my black arm band (never been hit). The group looked awesome rolling through town.
However, town is about as far as I got as my %#$@ tire blew. I rolled back on my flat from the golf course to The Loading Dock to hang with Doug and Jeff.
Everyone reported a great ride with no incident...as it should be.
