On Saturday, five riders set out to ride a long, long way- like fifty miles.
1 rider got some cramps, which left 4 riders as the temperature increased.
1 rider was “on-call” for the heart surgery team, and he is expecting a baby any minute, so away he went as the miles unrolled.
1 rider missed some turns and ended up home, as the water ran out.
1 rider got a flat, watched another rider change it, then watched that tube
(ole Patchy) go flat again, then called for back-up, which left;
1 rider to finish it off the way it began, and creep slowly up the street to his house 5 hours later.
That rider was me.
