It's always fun to run into your friends out on a ride, but not literally. This morning, Jessica, her son Lane, and I went for an early ride out at Wilderness park. We thought there would be hardly anyone out there, but didn't push a pace all the same. Well...... who should I meet around a blind corner but Dave. Fortunately, he was on a social ride too and was also going slow. Nonetheless, there are two toasted (steel) frames, my eye is nearly swollen shut, and his collarbone is cracked. Yes, we both had our lids on, so didn't break our skulls. Pics soon from Lance. :) Y'all be careful out there. Both Dave and I thought we were being plenty noisy.
Oh and for those of you more concerned about the bikes .... The downtube of Dave's Kona was nearly ripped all the way apart. There's a small strip of metal holding it. My Karate Monkey has a pinched downtube. Nobody will be riding it any more. Sigh.
