My ride went smooth and wonderful. I think the youngsters let me go ahead of them so that they would not have to worry about me, but I still had a much faster, smoother ride than last year. Once again, the folks at Sheppard AFB did a great job. The Airmen and women were friendly and fun. I thought Jesse would take more photos of the Airmen lined up to cheer us on, but she did not. Here is one of Shay and you can see the Airmen in the distance. I am hoping Shay got some good pics as he made the corner. I took this photo of Jes and this very tall young man. Jesse took one of me with him also; I look like a midget up next to him.
Toby's ride did not go so well. He broke a spoke, which sent his wheel wobbling. The SAG wagon picked him up and took him to Electra. Since his sisters live in Electra, he called them to come get him. They brought him back to WF. Somewhere along the way, he lost one of his new gloves. Jan finished the 100K and seemed to have had a good ride. I hate it that Toby's ride did not go as well, but mine was excellent making me want to do it again next year.
