Greenbelt Exploits Reminisced in Miniature

Ah, I love Greenbelt.  Even when I can't quite hang on to the bunch sprint during the last 200 yards.  But leaving the job slightly early, riding out in a bunch through terra I-don't-go-there, an hour of racing followed by a swift ride home under a darkening sky is an incomparably pleasant way to spend an evening in the middle of a work week.
