You can't drop me!

Today is my normal Thurs. night bike ride. And, for the first time since I started doing this ride back in March of '09, I did NOT. GET. DROPPED!

I could see people on the ride the entire way and even rode most of the way back with one of them. During that time we passed two of our group who went the wrong way, then they came back and passed us. Then, I decided we needed to catch up with them.

So we did. (A short offering to the Traffic Light fairy helped with that.)

The four of us rode into the parking lot together. What a great feeling.

I have to say, it's a lot more fun on a group ride if you actually have someone to ride with. One of the reasons I like our new hill route so much is that it has lots of optional loops so I get to see people throughout most of the ride as they come from an optional section and pass me, even if I am riding alone most of the time.

Maybe next time I do the hill route, I won't get dropped either!

Oh and, not only did I not get dropped, but we got back in enough time that I'm thinking I may do one of the optional parts of the route in a few weeks. I already go all the way out to Portolla, which is the Group 3-4 route and not the Group 5-6 route. Dare I work my way up to the Group 1-2 route by season end? We'll see!
