Lots and lots of cyclists for tonight's Canal ride. I forgot my camera so no good images to post and also discovered my dog had taken my gloves after leaving them out to dry. Not a good start. However, there were lots and lots of cyclists for tonight's CSo many in fact that Peggy ordered me to take the sign-up sheet around to the late arriver's cars, thus enabling said late arriver's habit of being late but I lack the courage to say no to the Peggster. One guy wished I had not come around. He asked me to dismount my bike and hold a faulty pump to the tire's nozzle while he pumped. Thinking I had to yank the pump away from the nozzle quickly to avoid air leakage, I also yanked the nozzle out of the tube and so, with 4 minutes prior to the start, he had to replace his tube. Thank you very much.
