A solo jaunt from the statue of Gandhi. I ended up riding solo by chance, and that was okay, as I was able to scout out some routes for future PPTC rides. So instead of the planned 62-ish mile ride, I ended up riding a much more hilly (but shorter) route. Some of the drivers were real jerks (especially a burgundy Ford Explorer along Seven Locks Road, who raced by me at such close proximity that I felt his rear-view mirror brush my arm – not cool, fella), but most were in a good mood. Lots of other cyclists were out, too, and while the weather was quite sticky, a bit of a breeze helped out.
