Greenway at the Brandywine Road end. We parked the car and unloaded the bikes behind Ilan's Bicycle Sport. I'd link him but his shop's page is 'Coming soon' and his blog has not been updated since the 08 Interbike. Wait, if you want to read about him check this out. Down the hill and across the beautiful Greenway all the way to the hospital. Once there we stopped, had a snack of almonds and water and then I fixed a flat on my bike. When the break was over we rode back to the park and played Frisbee on a soccer field that we had all to ourselves. After an hour or so of that disc flying fun we jumped back on our bikes and rode back to Brandywine and up the final climb back to the car.
On the way there we saw a rider pulling a B.O.B. trailer loaded with a medium sized brown dog on the Booty Loop. I asked her to take a picture of the dog in the trailer but she got side tracked not realizing her own reflection as the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. This is one of the neatest images she has ever made.
A side stop off of the Greenway and the water felt good.
Snack time at the far end of the Greenway near Moorehead. When we went to leave my rear tire was flat, like the 5th I had had in a week. I fixed it on the spot and later that day I found the cause of my flat pandemic. 12 new tubes in stock and I should not flat again for awhile.
On the return leg of the journey.
Before we left the back of the Shop Ms. Arcen and I wanted to know what Ilan and crew were throwing away. Stop whining kid and get in there. Do you see anything shiny or made of in tact rubber? The frame was bent cracked, the wheels totalled and the handle bars tweaked. Did the owner of the Cannondale get ran over by a car or did he back up over his bicycle with his Ford Excursion??
