Orange and Black

Almost black and blue. Orange and black because I'm still on the Alterra email list for group rides. I usually can't fit them into the schedule, but...It was a great day for a long ride with some old friends. So I hooked up with my old teammates from Alterra for a Pewaukee ride. It was a beautiful day and a great ride. Usually when I'm on a group ride I notice drivers give more room when they pass than when they pass an individual rider. I'm not sure why. Apparently no one told Grandma Buick. She almost ended one of us today. She had to be 6 inches away at most. I wish I could have gotten the license plate number. It freaked us all out a little but it didn't spoil a great ride. I'm glad I'm still on the Alterra email list.

Why, oh why, are you riding so far to the right? Taking the lane will cause overtaking vehicles to slow down and pass safely. The further you are to the left, the more leeway you will be given by passing autos.

Were tough and have good skills, screw grandma.

Maybe a little "forensic revue" of that video could pull out at least a partial plate number.
