I’ve had a really hard time getting on the bike recently. I hadn’t ridden since Monday. I got an email this morning from Tim, asking if I’d like to tag along for a “recon ride” to scope out an upcoming RCCS ride.
That’s all it took, and we had a great 25-mile ride through parts of Louisville I’ve never seen. We went down brick alleys, through historic neighborhoods, and along the Beargrass Creek Trail. It was a nice ride.
Tim, usually one to bring a camera, was travelling light. I had mine, and he borrowed it when we were stopped while I fixed my bike. We were in the St. James Court area when a small tree branch got into my front wheel. Although it destroyed my front fender, nothing else was damaged, and I didn’t wreck. So, a quick few minutes to remove the destroyed fender, and we were off.
