One of the original Lunartics that moved to New Jersey last year came back up to Newtown for a party and got really wrecked the night before but still made it to our weekly ride to OOF. It was a cold morning after a storm came through the night before and we were dressed with long sleeves in summer.
In honor of Steve's visit we took what we call the Tramp Route - which is named after him and the first route we rode to Ovens of France. Without Steve we usually avoid this route because it has a lot of climbing. Nonetheless, we were climbing up Purchase Brook Road when Gavin got a flat.
After Gavin fixed his tire we headed up Spruce Brook Mountain to visit the cows at the top of the climb.
I kept an eye on my rear tire because before leaving the house it was nearly flat. When we turned onto Rt 317 later in the ride I almost skidded out because my rear tire was almost flat. I put air in the tire and caught up.
Steve was not able to eat anything
I ended up putting a tube in it.
