No tire issues today. Optimistic that Village Cycle Shoppe fixed the problem. Please keep your fingers crossed. I’d do it myself but my fingers aren’t functioning well enough to do that.
I missed a few miles today. Long story but bottom line is that I do not want to be riding the keys on Friday. Assuming there will be lots of traffic for Labor Day weekend. Plan to pedal the missed stretch on way home.
Tried for a change of luck today. Boston Children’s Hospital had sent me a jersey. Hoped that would change my fortune.
I was extremely nervous with each pedal stroke for the first couple hours. I was expecting a flat tire. My mind eased a bit with each mile. 5 flats in 60 miles had been a bit traumatizing.
Gerty rolled well today. We were back at cruising speed. Thank goodness.
It was a scenic ride down the coast. Only hills were bridges.
Kris and Kerri were waiting for me in Lake Worth with another surprise.
Our other daughter, Brooke, had been at a bachelorette party in Palm Beach and stayed an extra day to join us. I had no clue she was behind me in video. I thought Kris was just taking a pic of Kerri and I.
We had a great little family reunion.
Forgot to mention yesterday that Kerri had bought her dad’s beers and then dinner for her parents. Thanks, Kerri.
I’m now pretty confident that Gerty will make it to Key West.
Going to be passing through Miami tomorrow. Guessing that will be a bit hectic.
