Today was the kickoff for The Big Ride which is a weekly group ride hosted by one of the local cycling clubs and my favorite bike shop. The ride began on the downtown square and was supposed to start with a ceremonial tour of the downtown area with the mayor. My friend Mandy and I decided to sneak out of the group before that and headed out on our own. We were meeting another friend to ride at a stop along the route and didn't want her to have to wait too long for us.
