As a result of rigorous analysis and comparison of the two bike routes in question (using non-scientific methods), it has now been determined that the Knox route bears every indication of having imitated the “Rolling thunder” route, albeit with several significant modifications.
Please be advised that the proper authorities will be notified. Again, thanks for your vigilance and dedication.
Nevertheless and despite the sense the wool was being pulled over our eyes, we made the long drive to Gambier for a 9:00am start on a hot and somewhat humid day. We departed via the Kokosing Bike Trail but not before Poobah surveyed the parking lot and.....
This was at mile 25 and we enjoyed lounging in front of the market. I told Marty what a class act he was to pull for 25 miles but he admitted at some point he'd have to start pedaling with both legs and maybe wouldn't be around much longer, which was understandable. Leaving Glenmont, we started up the climb on 206 where Marty took the KOM points after spotting those in front a sizable head start. Randy confided to me that Marty had been first up and I asked him if he knew Marty. Saying he did not I filled him in. Last I saw of Marty, he was way ahead and Randy was hanging in there but not sure for how long.
