Meantime, normal cyclists gathered at the New Albany parking lot on a cool and windy evening. Not too many people showed up early and even by 5:30 the crowd was rather light. After looking at another creative route by Shannon and checking the wind, I had another vision. It's amazing how these pop up prior to certain rides. There I am chatting with someone when suddenly, a fog rolls over my eyes displacing the current scene and replaced by an image of a cyclist, he rather looks like me, alone out on Chatham Road, strong head winds buffeting the brave cyclist plodding back to the west, darkness rolls in, cyclist forced to bum a ride on the back of a cattle truck and arrives back at the parking lot at 10:00pm. Then, the image sequence disappears and I take it as a sign. Forget that cut throat A group, ride with the friendly B's instead!
