Joe, Was that you I saw riding east on RT 165 around 2p or so??


That ride and heat kicked my ass! Slow and steady all the way with one minor dump (no hero sections). Sure was a treat to have that lunch break.

That was him. And he calls me Mr. Magoo. Though I guess all I had to do was follow arrows on the trees.

The first hero section is what ate Claudio's tire. It also overheated our bikes. On the second hero section there were a couple of spots that had signs that pointed to different lines, the signs were labeled "Real Men" and "Pussies".

It was good seeing everyone again!

Poor Joe he had to go get help for me,I ruined the rest of his ride,did not know that the" Snap-On " crew was behind,that first hero was the nastiest ugliest,hero ever,reminded me of the place where Yoda trained Luke Skywalker sans the water...and we decided to take a break less than a minute from the road,but who knew where the road was!
I did not beat the rain riding back home,rained from Norwich all the way home in Newington.My jeans stayed dry so did the snickers,got wet through the jacket vents wich I left open like a moron,

Calling Dr. Oz

Darius, did you try your DoctorOz mixture of .5 tsp baking soda + .5 tsp of sea salt per liter of water? If so how did it work yesterday. My son and I did the Thrill and Chill and really dehydrated terribly despite hydrating Saturday and Sunday morning. It felt as though we were in the desert, wait we were for awhile weren't we.
They should rename the ride Thrill and Roast.

Usually you just put the iron between the tire and rim

It's not just stuck on, it's re-vulcanized.

Of course you'll have to weigh repair cost vs replacement cost....





look for a truck shop or tire retreading shop nearby in Ct.
Find the guy that's says "Yeah, I can fix that up better than new!"

I'll be wathcing the weather. If it's going to wet forget it I'm out. If it's going to be dry then I'm 50/50.

I dont think that's a pinch flat! I think you rode over something! I am cheaper than dirt and I would just replace that tire. just my opinion!
