Hope everyone had an enjoyable Ride.
My sincere apologies to Joel, Lauri, Brian for not seeing you at Port Union. The group was quite big and it was decided that we would bypass the Guild. I was trying to keep everyone together and completely forgot about you guys. Sorry again.
If this was your first time doing Goodwood, hope you enjoyed it or at least now can say you've done it. I know the group(s) I was with all seemed to have a good ride, we all kept together, till the last part of Kingston. Thanks Jonathan and Paul for marshaling, and anyone else I missed.
Couple things to think about:
1. Yellow Line Rule - Stay in the Lane at all times. Noticed some issues on Kingston Rd. heading East down the hill. Gotta keep in the lane. Get into poll position ahead of time on descents and accents. This limits awkward/unsafe passing. - (Safety)
2. Keep as a group, when riding, try to stay close. You are only as safe as the farthest person out. I noticed in the group that I was with, that there were times where we were not riding predictably. ie. Cars don't know if we are going to swerve out. This can be unnerving for drivers and also sometimes cause them to think cyclists "don't care" We have to share the road respectively and be predictable. (Safety)
Till next week. There is Video in the Album - Coming down Reesor at 50km/h+ chasing Speedy Steve. Enjoy.
