I must disagree with your comment about Dave's family being cranky in the
morning! In fact, as you know, I'm married to Dave's beautiful sister who
is always cheery in the morning! If ever there was a morning person, it's
Sandy. Maybe it's just you that causes the crankiness? ;-)
As for Mark and Andy... they were soft peddling on the right side of the
canal trail waiting for us. I'd guess that we were together within the
first 100 yards to the bike path. We rode with you for a while, but when
you increased the speed over 22mph I let up to stay with Dave and the
others. I said something to you too, but you obviously didn't hear me, or
it didn't register, as you kept motoring along. Oh well.
I'm not sure how many times I saw you in the midst of the crowds this
weekend, but you don't exactly blend in, you know. I mean how many guys do
you see that stand 6'9" tall and are dressed in green? You and the jolly
green giant are the only ones that come to my mind! So, to answer your
question; yes, you are easier to see.
In any event, I'm still signed up for the Seacoast Century so we'll probably
have a chance to ride together then.
