[The sign does indicate Dickerson, even though it is unreadable in this photo.
All photos by me.]
I came across a character that perhaps would appreciate human intervention.
I knew that LynnL would appreciate said intervention.
So I took before and after "rescue photos".
I sent the "before" photo to Lynn.
She responded, "rescue it!"
I sent the second photo.
It was a good ride.
Much of it felt as if there was "no chain."
I backed off my effort the last 21-kms or thereabouts,
So that I would be able to function the rest of the day.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
I snagged my quickest official rando elapsed time on this course since November-2015.

However, I figure that my next ride will be at my recent usual sloggy-slow pace.
