    Lessons learned from the run:

    1) Let the girls do the talking to the police.

    2) Extinguish headlights when taking photos.

    3) Nexus hubs rock!

    cop: "you do sound like an ass."

    cop: "i don't know what group you're all with..."

    cop: "it's illegal to run red lights on a bike in maryland."
    me: "sorry, sir. we didn't know that. we're from dc."
    cop: "i'm pretty sure it's illegal there too."
    me: "i'm sorry, sir. we're just confused."

    classic.

    I thought I heard a "I was just following the guy in front" thrown in there...

    this also might have worked, given the neighborhood: "Sorry sir, we're just on the way to the [insert one: yacht, country] club."

    WTF, you guys got stopped? I didn't know that. Give full details, pls. What did the cop say? Why did Sol say that you have a right to the road (that is, what was he responding to?)?

    Also, Justin, hi. (I'm alphabetically and we bumped into each other over on LJ. I recognized yer icon.)

    we ran a red light, and according to the cop, someone "nearly got hit." he didn't know how to deal with a large pack of swiftly moving pirates, though, so he sort of drove up and down the pack yelling at each of us in turn, until i stopped him, by stopping myself.

    I heard (from someone who saw the cop and better not ran the light right in front of him), that the someone "nearly got hit." is total BS. Apparently there was NO CROSSING TRAFFIC WHATSOEVER!!!

    yeah i saw the cop, and thought since we had run like two lights in front of him he was out of his jurisdiction then i hear sirens and think its an ambulance, look back: no this pig****er is yelling at all the pirates behind me, but still rolling in both lanes.

    Yeah i agree with emily, maryland bicycle laws suck, so we should be very cautious there or avoid maryland streets.
