Yesterday tired old man, Today retired old man
I will be 65 in a cupple of weeks. Yesterday I started my 10 mile ride but when I got to the turn around I just kept going, 35 miles to Sea Isle City. That is when it came to me, I can ride 65 miles for my 65 years . So I filed up my watter bottle and started home, it was hot it was long and the hills were higher steeper, I was slowing but I made the final turn 5 miles to go. there are 3 hills I have to go over, man were thay hard . I made it up the first 2 and on the 3rd I was realy hurting, a cupple hundred feet from the top the tire gave a wosh and shut me down 62 miles. I was to tired to fix the flat I just started pushing. about a mile and a half down the rode a guy stops to tell me I was doing it wrong I was suppose to be rideing the bike. loaded the bike in the back of his truck and made it home I am sure glad he stoped I dont know if I would have made 2 hr of pushing it would take to get home. If the miles don't add up to you I did a little 3 mile loop befor I started that I was not going to do on the way home. This was on my Explorer 2 comfort bike sure didn't feel comfortable at the end of my ride.
