As I headed through the North Shore, I encountered the Color Run 5K. Oh, hell. Should I take North Shore Drive and ride with the flow of runners? Should I stay on the RiverWalk and ride contraflow against all these people walking/running down there?
I made a bad decision. I felt like an ass when I saw the increasing volume of runners coming at me and got out of there as soon as I could.
I was the least colorfully dressed of the bunch as it turns out, an odd feeling.
|40MPH? Good one. Everything's moving at 4MPH.|
WARNING: salty language in the video.
|I move for no man.|
I had to hoist the front end of the bike over the barrier just to turn around: the PedPath is so narrow you can't turn a bike around on it.
Not long after that, my knee didn't like what I was doing and told me to stop riding my bike. I discarded the notion of making it to REI or riding 10 miles tomorrow and left Fizz at work. The traffic heading back home with the tunnel closed was a nightmare.
An interesting day, however. I clocked just under 6 miles on the bike.
