It was a great ride.  The weather may not be as warm as I want, but the company sure is.

My only negative about today would have been more about it being early in the season and people just being unaware of who is around them and what they are doing themselves. 

A couple of sketchy situations, but all good in the end. 

Good comments at the Zoo break were made and a definate improvement after that.

Can everybody wish for warm weather now!!!! (not too warm...just nice...)

I totally agree with you two. I had a really nice ride today, and it was nice to meet the new riders. Let's just get on top of our group riding etiquette while it's early in the season so that we can all enjoy a safe summer of riding. Remember - try to be the person that you would like to ride behind in a group - steady, predictable... and someone that you would feel comfortable sharing the road with as a motorized vehicle driver as well. There was a lot of erratic wiggling and jockeying around on the rides today - I heard a lot of comments regarding people wanting to stay away from various individuals who were swerving and jumping around a lot. Like Dan says, being a strong rider sometimes means riding slow and steady.

On another note, I noticed that some people have done a lot of work over the winter - Laura, you're totally kicking butt! Lindy, great to see you out today too! And Steve J... well, super-fast, but such a great, steady rider. It's fantastic to see people improving year to year. So nice to see old friends out again, and good to meet new riders.
