North Shore Tour de Cure

Another successful ride; 62 miles in the sun, despite a rainy forecast. Check out that helmet indent on your forehead! πŸ™‚


Even though you left me with a flat tire and without a pump for a few miles soon after the start, and I had to wait until people who started a half hour after us stopped to help me, I still enjoyed the ride. You did eventually come back for me πŸ™‚ . And, near the end, you found ten dollars!


The route:

Thanks go to Charity and Aunt Bonnie for being so generous with their donations πŸ™‚

  1. And I’m thinking maybe I should look for a new helmet before our tour…

    I’m glad you had a good time despite the problems around your flat tire though, I also had a really good time, looking forward to our next ride together :-). It was also a lot of fun hanging out in Boston on Saturday, and going for a late evening bike ride together.

  2. Time for my side of the story: First off, I think you should add “mistakenly” to that first sentence! And perhaps it wouldn’t have taken me so long to realize you weren’t behind me if you were wearing any color other than red… since, ironically enough, the whole thing was in support of the “red riders”! Anyhow, I think we learned a valuable lesson (or two) during this ride, which apply mostly to the beginning of rides when the pack has yet to thin out:

    1.) If only 1 person in the group has a pump, don’t let them ride ahead πŸ™‚
    2.) Don’t keep assuming that the other person is somewhere in the pack right behind you, if you haven’t seen them in a while

    Anyhow, I think this is good, now you’ll probably be afraid of letting me get ahead, so you’ll be really fast and always ride ahead of me! This is okay with me though, as long as I carry the pump! Just think… someday when you’re winning all sorts of crazy races, later in your cycling career, you’ll be thanking me for putting you through this πŸ˜‰

    And I did find the $10 along the course, but you kept it. Like you said, it’s payback for the money you lost to the machine in the Providence Mall parking garage. Now you can once again be at peace with the world.
