Harold Peter , John and I headed out. The roads at first were bumpy. Then it started to mist. Off and on.
I told Peter I got a picture of the abominable snowman. Then I show him this pic of him leading the pack. It's just as rare.
Stopped just outside of Flint at Carries sag. We picked up a couple of older ladies who didn't feel comfortable biking through town on their own.
The roads were in rough shape. Some roads I just couldn't point out all the pot holes. It wasn't a busy road so we said everyone spread out and fend for yourself. Through town the tour de rain started again. We came into a sketchy part of town and I was leading. I have to say we blew through about three or four red lights. The people behind me followed and asked me what I was doing. I told them unless they wanted to lose their hubcaps we weren't stopping. We got to the sag on the other side of town with no problems. I went to a McDonald's today but I only used the washroom. It wasn't easy. The not eating in mcds. That's what wasn't easy.
We were getting close to the end of the ride.
We went past a lake and some boats. I'm missing summer at home. Through all the rain I thought I'd make it to camp with dry shoes. The rain would calm down just before they would get soaked. Then the last 10 k it rain harder and harder. By the time we got into the school I was soaked. The bike was filthy. Looks like I have my work for tonight.
I took it a little easier today. Well not really. I just took it easier at the end because I could feel my knee starting up again. So there's proof you can teach an old dog a new trick. I'm looking forward to crossing over into Canada tommorow. I hear we're going on a ferry. Should be neat. Ill get lots of pics. See you Len
