National Geographic photographer Sam Abell presented at Randolph Community College tonight, so I asked him if he would lead a photo walk in Asheboro with students during the day. He agreed and I made a study of his hat.
Lucky day! For the first time I can remember, a group ride goes down. This was the worst of the road rash.
