We headed out on a neat route that took some of us on new roads and as previously posted, we did see some of the views I had promised such as passing babbling brooks with fishes jumping from the water, we did see an albino wolf jump into our midst, we did see a view of the coast and water and gosh was it a beautiful day of sun. Worked our way over to Millersport with a steep hill thrown in there that I do not recall ever riding before today. Dustin got a head start on us and won the KOM points with a vicious battle behind him for 2nd.
Oh, get this, while riding Blue Jay, I came across Lisa T. who was fixing a flat. Being a considerate, kind cyclist, naturally I stopped to see if I could help. Nope, she had everything but I hovered just in case, if nothing else to keep the local rednecks away. First, Lisa reinstalled her old tube rather than the new one but hey, that can happen to anyone. Then, after replacing the old tube with a new one, she ran most of the CO2 out of the cartridge prior to shoving it onto the tube nozzle. I won't lie, I got a big kick out of this scene. Fortunately, I had my micro pump and after she pumped for 5 minutes, I took the 2nd shift and some time later, had the tire pressure up to 80-90. Another fun day on the bike but which days are not, when partially spent on a bike.
