Day 16: Kokomo IN to Fishers IN


Day 16:

The plan for the day was a quick ride down to the north side of Indianapolis, get in early and let the kids go to the movies with their grandma that is traveling with Ang for a few days. It was a easy flat 45 miles.

Unfortunately that plan did not go to well. At about the halfway point of the ride I noticed Rainey’s wheel had a wobble. This could lead to a lot of problems so we decided to look for a bike shop. Then not even 3 miles later, I go a flat on my bike. So we pull over to patch it. The patch did not hold, so 4 miles later, we stopped again to change the tube. Then we finally reached the bike shop and Rainey had a broken spoke. Rainey did run over wire from a coat hanger or something earlier in the day that got all tangled up. That may have lead to this problem.

So once we got it all fixed and we made it to the hotel it was nearing 7:00 and we had logged over 50 miles for the second day in a row. So the movie plan is off. We are going to try to squeeze it in on a short day one of the next 2 days. Tonight, the girls need to just rest and watch some movies.

Grandma hung out with the girls and Ang and I took Aspen and went and did some mmuch needed laundry. Aspen had nearly run out of diapers.
