Ride in the hills type day
Barry said he’s worked enough, let’s go for a ride today, so I agreed and we took off up into the hills.
Slight mishap, ouch
We rode around quite a bit and it was all going good, when we were taking a shortcut and we ran into another downed tree. I had to back up and when I tried to turn around on the hill, my bike fell over on me. It wasn’t a hard fall, but my leg was stuck under the bike. I worked a bit and got that out and Barry came over to help me get the bike back up.
A bit of blood
We took off and rode all around the hills going over most every road and Barry says, let’s see if we can get down this one. We made it and ended up on this paved road. Barry’s looking at his map to figure out just exactly where we were.
We had a good rest there. When I went to get back on the bike I noticed some oil puddles below the bike. I checked the oil and it was plenty full. I couldn’t figure out where the oil came from but likely had something to do with my crash earlier. I’ll have to keep an eye on that for awhile to make sure nothing is broken. As it was, the leak oiled up my chain nicely.
Barry took off for home and I had a good nap.
I didn’t get as much van prep done today as I’d planned as I was tired out, but there’s not too much to do to get it done. I did get all my water jugs filled up and loaded up. I have one more day to get it all loaded up and ready to go.
