Beware the Old Guys that do Charity Rides

Various captions come to mind, like, “we’re putting the band back together” or Tour de Fat, but don’t let the girth of these old guys fool you. They’ll drop the hammer when you least suspect it, do everything they can to catch back onto the group, and roar down the descents. Ride any charity ride and you’ll meet them. They wait for you. Sure they don’t climb like the used to, but the fire still burns.
