Rode to my parents' place today

Last night, I'd originally planned on riding this route today. The car I'm letting my dad borrow is having problems, though, and that route takes me pretty close to my parents place, so I swung by to check it out. It looks like the battery is probably hosed, but it was working fine last week.

Quickly after making the detour to my parents place, I ran into a peloton of riders. I saw a few jerseys for my bike club in the pack, but I don't know if it was one of their usual rides. There were about 15-20 riders, and I zipped around them. Any one of them could have easily dropped me, but as a group, they were not only going too slow for my style, but I had to get to my parents place, fix my car, and still get back to the college by noon. I'm sure they thought I was an a-hole roadie until they saw that I was wearing a t-shirt, mountain bike shoes, and had the commuter rack thing going. I must look like such a tool when I ride.

I rode past the airport on my way back to the college. More airport pictures Here, Here and Here.
