Ok, it is not a race, but I will still do a report!
Rest stop number 3… guess what , no, I did NOT fall that time! I looked around and the two ladies were not there, see they were bad luck for me! Got another banana and a slice of orange and for the last time hit the road. Felt great! I realized as I was approaching the end that my back tire was flat, but at that point I didn’t care! I stood up most of the way to keep as much weight off the back as possible. I crossed the finish line and got a medal! I didn’t expect that. J
I put my bike up (without falling), changed shoes and headed into the little expo they had set up. I think this was their first ride, there weren’t many people there. Of course there was a booth set up for Susan G. Koman stuff, I got a running hat and two bottles/cups things. There were only a few other booths, it was nice and small. The food consisted of BBQ and pizza. Borriello Brothers has some good pizza! Plus there was beer or root beer, the root beer was YUM!
After eating I hit the road back home, stopped by the bike shop so they could figure out what the heck was going on with my bike and fix my flat (I can do it, I just chose not to!).
I would have to say besides the fact this ride was for a good cause, it was an excellent way to spend a Saturday morning. The course support was great, the other riders were wonderful. I really enjoyed it and assuming they do it again next year, I will be out there then too!
