On one of my people intervals, I was in recovery mode when two older gentlemen came up on our group of three. When the riders in front of me pulled over, I pulled over with him to let the two pass. As soon as they did, I jumped in behind them. They didn't realize it and the lead guy made some comment about "almost hitting that chick", which he had since he was too close when we pulled over. That was enough for me to make sure I stayed with them. I kept quiet and later when we came up on another rider that had pulled over, the lead guy said "just the two of us". I quickly added "actually there is one more". The guys couldn't hide their shock (#1) and then they turned on the heat (#2). I stayed with them for awhile and took pleasure knowing they were probably at their limit trying to drop "the chick".
