At about mile 30 of my scheduled Gravel Metric yesterday, I felt something wet misting on my legs, I thought one of my 32 oz water bottles was leaking. Realizing I drank both bottles empty and was on my way to a bottle refill I looked down at my bike frame and saw "green slime" flying around, I said the "F" word. "FLAT" tire. The spray of green slime...
Well that left me with not another spare tube and DUH!!! no tube patches. So for some reason I felt if I ride as fast I can and if I get a flat I won't have to walk as far because I will be closer to home, not much cell phone coverage out here in the woods either. The next 30 miles I kept pushing myself, and made it home.
Today was road riding day. Had fun riding through parks, along the Mississippi River front and camp grounds. It was a great ride except the part where the fat guy, smoking a cigarette showed his displeasure of me by passing me close, slowing down along side of me and honking his horn. :sigh: if I could only be a manly man like you sir. Freak'n moron!!!!
I received my RAGBRAI registration in the mail, I tried to hide it from Creepy Baby, she found it. I don't want to take her along, however, she has other plans in mind.
Well thanks for visiting, Monday through Friday, here we come.
