This was a great ride. Eddie came out and did the 24 Miles option also, he would have done the longer route but he had an appt at the gym. Total ride length was 48.29 miles.
This was a very interesting ride. I saw a rider go down hard, I think her name was Rhonda. She also took my CCW class. She was riding along at the front of the pack pulling and she ran over a pad lock (like a master lock) When her front tire was on front of it she started sliding on it and went down fast to the left. She hit really hard i thought for sure she was hurt bad, but she hopped right up and was perfectly fine! That’s it right… WRONG! Right after she went down I ran over something that i assumed was debris from her bike it ended up being the pad lock. It was bouncing around in the road after she hit it and it slammed right into my big chain ring and bent the crap out of it! I was fine for about 20 miles after the impact but, once we wound it up to about 21 MPH the chain started popping off of the ring. It ended up bending it so bad that i had to replace the chain and the big chain ring. Friggin sucks!
