Driving a backup car for cyclists is an interesting task, especially when escorting the group on busy roads. One does not make many friends when using a Transit to block one lane of traffic.
Escorts in the city are also curious. There is a strict protocol to make sure that the bikes and the van stay together. Police escorts are, of course, the most comfortable.
Today's escort, however, was beyond all expectations. We caused huge lines of traffic on the way to the city, and then we got all traffic blocked as we entered. So loud and so blue. It was hilarious!
I can't get enough of these loud, blue caravans. There is no other way to travel.
