Lost in Jersey, Six Flags, a flat and a Peach...

Answer: My Ride on Saturday! After cranking about 23 miles with a tailwind at my back, I was flying. But, I lost my train of thought and was so giddy about the ride that I ended up at...Six Flags! What? I really had no idea how I got there, but I kept on going thinking I could circle around, back to where I came from. Then came a sharp rock under the rear tire and, '..ssssss.' 20 minutes later (not bad timing for a guy that hasn't changed a tube out in over 20 years), and I headed back the other direction but, this time, with the marvelous wind that pushed me an average of 23 mph for an hour now was holding me back to 18. About the time I was looking for an eastward diversion, a farmstand with peaches appeared. A tasty giant peach, two bottles full of cold water, some directions (another 9 miles to go), I made it back to a very anxious family wondering where I went. As my mother used to say, 'don't think I wanna know what I don't wanna know.' I'd say.

Or, as I also used to say, "don't ask questions you don't want to hear the answers to!"
