THERE'S A LOT OF TALK LATELY ABOUT SOMEBODY TAKING CHARGE OF XYZ GROUP RIDE AND LAYING DOWN THE LAW. It sounds a little harsh, so few people step up to do it. I started having a chat before our weekly Tuesday morning ride, and now I invite someone each week to have the chat for me.
Passing the baton shares the responsibility and keeps us all engaged for the day we might be called upon.
I'm printing this out so I remember what to say, what's important. Who knows, you might read it one day... for that, I thank you in advance.
It was not easy the first time,
it was embarrassing,
it's easy now,
because our ride is a lot better...
for me, and everybody else.
