Ride home for Friday, 06 June

Rode the Bike Week Friday after-work ride. There weren't so many showed up for that as for Critical Mass last week, but there were still 20-30 or so. The ride was done in single file, following the rules of the road, and seemed to annoy drivers more than anything else - it was dangerous for them to pass, but they couldn't pass anyway because the line was so long...

After that was an alleycat down at Ideal. I managed, for the first time in my less than illustrious career in racing, something other than DFL and DNF! I managed to finish in front of both Krow and Carter! However, I learned at the race that drinking a Red Bull (courtesy of the girls who brought in a container full) followed by a Propellor Pale Ale (courtesy of Steve, one of the couriers) was not a great idea.

I'm sure I'd do better if I knew all the shortcuts too - I'm still finding them now, but Roger seems to know them all!

Good luck in England, let me know if you need any more info.
