    A moment in time.

    Got a late start this morning, about fifteen miles in I turned on
    to the town square trail, fell in behind a couple of riders, about
    the same speed as I do, next intersection we picked up a couple
    more, then three. Next intersection two more and a police car
    waiting at the stop sign. He asked the lead rider, " where you
    head'ed", "Town square" was the reply. The police car took the
    lead, lights flashing, siren for the intersection and lead the pack
    to the town square. We all stopped to get a drink, check out each
    others bikes, visit and tell a few yarns. My old Trek seemed to be
    the hit of the pack, most of the others were new bikes. Several
    high end jobs as well, Orbea's!

    Total count, seventeen bikes!

    We've had cops spontaneously cork for us or escort us on Critical Mass rides.
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.
