I wasn't going to do it. Was going to avoid the crowd of Arizona Bike Week and CycleFest. I woke up this morning, had my coffee and finished my puzzles. Looked at the clock and it was only 7:30. I knew that Chester's HD was having a breakfast and bike ride to support the Special Olympics. Breakfast sounded good - and a chance to look at a bunch of bikes. So I saddled up and rode to Mesa. To park in the lot, I had to join the crowd. Once I was ensconced in the crowd, it just made sense to go along for the ride. It was an escorted ride, so every intersection was held open for us. Bikes started rolling out at 10, I didn't leave the lot until after 11. Miles and miles of motorcycles. Dave rode in Rolling Thunder in D.C. with 400,000 bikes. I can't imagine that crowd - this one was too large for me.
