We all enjoy the feeling of cruising in a long fast paceline, but that sickening crunch you hear when someone crashing just turns your stomach. No matter how talented the riders, then an accident is always possible. Here is a picture yesterday at the scene where even experienced riders like Chris and Jody can take a spill (luckily with no major damage) if the circumstances are such.
Please always be careful in any size group and use a combination of hand signals and verbal communication to prevent issues. Pat mentioned this morning that he has someone working on a pamphlet on hand signals that we can use to promote this most important communication.
We have also been experiencing a series of tickets (I got one) and some very upset police officers up and down A1A. To resolve that, we need to focus on two things: Never ride more than two side by side and stop at all lights and stop signs.
We are having a great time together on Team ZMotion, so lets be accident and ticket free.
