June Flood Route
It was a great day for a ride!
Just before I got to my place for the second home control, at 132 km, my rear shifter failed. But I had forgotten all about it at my control. You know how it is, off the bike - you are focused on other things...
The only other eventful thing that happened was a big accident on the Yale Rd overpass. The road was completely shut down with a semi blocking the scene. I didn't want to have to detour, so I got off my bike and started walking across and asked the emergency personnel if I could cross, and they let me continue walking. Phew! I was hurting by this time and just wanted to get home.
Once I was over the overpass I got back on my bike. Now I was heading east towards home and the skies were black.
