We were told to gently remind the following cyclists that tickets were being issued, and as participants, they were required to follow the rules of the road. This bit of wisdom was quickly passed among the riders and the rest minded their p's and q's during the day.

All I got to say is, that some people need to be reminded, and if a ticket gets their attention, so be it!

This has gotta hurt...
