Dan quickly and professionally removed the wheel and whipped out a can of some kind of chemical solution. I guess the tire is filled with gas and this foamy stuff, simultaneously acquiring the needed pressure and sealing the hole. Soon, an odd smelling white foam was spread on Dan and anything within 20 yards. I heard some stirring by the residents of a near-by house and was certain the Haz Mat team had been called in. Unfortunately, the tire remained flat, apparently the seal had been broken between the rim and tire when Dan failed to navigate his bike around a pothole so deep, fishes could be seen swimming in it.
That same day, far, far south of New Albany is a ride out of the Logan Conference center on Chieftan Drive, starting at 9:00am. Includes Wildcat Hollow, Big Pine valley, Happy Hollow, Thompson Ridge descent into Laurelville for food stop, Middlefork, climb up Buena Vista, Cantwell Cliffs, Buck Run, and climb up Miller Rd. Great scenery in the heart of the Hocking Hills! Like the above ride, all are welcome. I hear Flyin Tuna will attend this one but don't allow that to deter you from attending.
Then, on Sunday, Rick Miller, ride leader on Thursdays, has invited all to ride from his home
