Bud's Ride: First of Thirty-Three

Those seasonal rides have returned to the weekly schedule, and among them is, of course, the Bud's Ride. I know this because, last night, I saw people waiting in the median for the finale to come streaming up the road. Rushing away to escape the end of day, I never did see anyone actually competing, but it was the first of, what, maybe thirty-three weeks of finishes? The trick with that is to keep "there's always next week" from becoming a four-times a month excuse. Anyway, I do kind of like those silhouette and setting sun photos, so there is that.
