Here is the video from the 5th Annual Jared Monti Ride.(click) It was an honor to fly flags after the family members who rode. You can easily see me and Cooper directly in front of the camera. See how Cooper pays attention to the bikes as they move out? It’s really kind of cool that he gets the order in which things are going to happen.
Most of the riders who went out before those of us who flew flags were ‘road guards’. Their job is to block the intersections so cars don’t cut into the pack of bikes, causing dangerous chaos. We have to stay together because the ride is escorted and to get split us means the followers don’t know the route.
