I was out in front as we made the final turn off Kitzmiller onto old 161. I stayed close to the shoulder and when the sprinters had enough of my cruising along they all bolted past me on my left. Craig stayed with me and we had picked up Old Mike as we rolled into town. The three of us witnessed wheels flying in the air just ahead of us. Always a terrible thing to see. The best I could tell, Will Gleason had a chain slip off his big ring and went down. Patrick Warren somehow ended up going down but managed to
roll it off and he looked like a million bucks like he always does. We even teased him that he can still wear his jersey after a few small holes are stitched up. It looked like Will broke his left collar bone and I am sure it will be very painful. He also had a case of road rash on his left elbow that will really hurt. We had Dr. Jay Passias to help us. Will’s mom and brother quickly came over and Rich Lewis helped Will into his car.
With 605 closed in front of the school, we will park elsewhere, with the below a suggested spot from Shannon but we will gather our bikes in the normal parking lot location and depart on our bikes from there. As you can see below, there are bike paths or side walks that can be followed from the alternate parking lot to the traditional start, which is just north of the image. Hope the weather clears in time for the ride.
