A longer ride!
Steve got his rear brake working again after rebuilding the whole backing plate. So off we went on another ride. This time Pat stayed behind us as we headed out on a 60 mile loop.
I really must hand it to Steve once again. The route he took me on put me though all my paces. We went up in the hills... long fast curves, then slow twisties. Through town and TRAFFIC! Yes! Traffic. Stop sings and traffic lights. I was nervous, but did pretty good.
We even went on some really bumpy roads. My seat springs work! I floated up and down just like I thought I would. Cool.
The bike ran great. It got a little easier, but I'll admit, it's a lot of work to ride this bike. I will admit, I was a bit mentally exhausted, but also had some confidence after this!
