Clyde chasing the pack - video
 
I'm still hovering just over 200# and will always be 6'4", so I thought I would post this here.

I've been chasing these guys all summer and plan to join the team and race some next year. It's been fun and a great way to keep motivated.

Looking good, looks like a lot of fun. I wish I had a group to ride with like that.

Anybody besides me bothered by how many of the group crossed the centerline going into that first turn, only to see oncoming cars immediately upon exiting the turn? Yikes.

I gave up being bothered by the antics of roadies a long time ago.

Indeed we (including to some degree me) were over the yellow line. The cyclist we were over taking were moving quite slow and I think it was best to give them plenty of room. One of them was startled and actually can be heard calling out for us to "call out". I don't know how he had not heard the chorus of "cars/bikes up". The corner is not as blind as it looks in the video. We/I saw the cars well in advance.

I think I like being lumped in with "roadies". Perhaps one day I will be skinny enough for this stupid sport.

Did you guys seek out the only roundabout in the US so you could feel like the pros? :)

We've got them all over north suburban Indy. Hamilton County (the county immediately north of Indy proper) is nuts about them. I'd venture to say they now outnumber 4-way stops where the typical one-mile grid roads intersect, not to mention the major thoroughfares.
