Another Independence Day parade has happened without any problems. This year, we were decked out in our bicycle club outfits with white strobe lights in front, three PBSFs each in the back, and US Flags on our paniers.
Despite the slowness of the speed, the focus that was needed, and the discipline that is required, every rider in the unit managed to keep his/her place in the group. Behind me and my bike partner, the unit used to quickly fall into a case of near catastrophy. But this year my bike partner and myself
were able to both concentrate on what we needed to do as bicyclists as well as enjoy the holiday.
Last year, I attended a rally in Fryeburg, Maine. The people attending the rally belonged to bicycle clubs not only from across the country but from some European countries as well. Over three days, the rally had many events; one of which was a parade of over 600 bicyclists! That rally will be held there again this year. Unfortunately, I will be unable to be there.
