This mission reminded Skunk and NoWay why we ride: to have fun. While it is our desire to have a lot of people ride with us, it is not a nessecary element in a mission. We rode though the industrial section of the Cambridge System, down alleys and deserted streets, through parking lots and parks, into tunnels and parkways. We realized that we must meander more and beeline less in missions.
One of the places we stopped was the intersection where Alexis Shepard was killed a year earlier in a cycling accident. We dropped some flowers off and said a few things in her honor.
