    3 flats, confrontation with homocidal roid-ragin' gorilla, trail ridin', lost power meter magnet, watermelon stop, and a near miss with a fence on a 40mph descent with a slow leak in a rear tire. Just your normal Brian Toone ride.

    Why did you decide to ride out towards ross bridge then turn back? Surely brian didn't choose that part of the route ;) ... this sounds a lot like the last climbing ride I joined you on...only slightly more weird. what's the gorilla thing about?

    This one was less dumb but more weird. Fortunately it didn't require nearly 7 hours to complete.
    I went towards Ross Bridge in expectations of meeting a companion for my journeys, but unfortunately nobody in Ross Bridge has a functioning alarm clock.

    The Gorilla was one of the scarier encounters I've ever had on a bike. Roid raging maniac in a giant SUV was talking on a phone and never saw us as we pulled into a median. I yelled "HEY!" to get his attention; he lost his mind, jumped out of the car (leaving it in the middle of the road), and threatened to kill us both. It was pretty wild.

Kudos
