Today the group ride was heading back into Loveland, westbound on 57th Street at about 1:30pm. We were slowing to make aleft turn onto Monroe Avenue, getting ready to stop because there was eastbound traffic coming at us. The eastbound traffic was lined up in the right turn lane, three or four cars. The lead car was a Larimer County Sheriff’s car.
The Sheriff’s car driver held traffic and motioned to us to turn left. He or she held traffic allowing us to go first – a really, really nice gesture.
Then as the Sheriff’s car passed us southbound, he or she flashed the top car lights as if to say “right on!”
Too often in past years, the Sheriff’s office has gotten bad press. It’s time for some well-deserved good press.
