Soo .... i was riding the poudre trail to Windsor .... almost there , I got a flat ... and had to turn around fast and rode back as far as i could w/out doing damage to my rims ...... then i had to get off and walk ...well , It was getting dark fast .... and i am still afraid of the dark esp. when in nature !

  So i did try running at 1st in my bike shoes but that started to give me a blister , So i just took them off strapped them to the handlebars and began to run along at about 6.7 miles an hour in bare feet with my bike helmet still atop my head ......

  5 people in vehicles passed me and do you think that one stopped to ask if i needed any assistance ?

 Ha ha one stopped not even to take a picture .... i'm sure i looked special running along side my bike while still wearing my helmet !

 I almost got bit by a snake and nearly squashed a large spider walking along the trail ..... in all i ran 3 miles in my bare feet and was late to dinner but did very barley beat the DARK !

  In Short .........PEOPLE SUCK !   i would like to think that if i saw someone in distress that i would stop and ask if they need my HELP!

oh, Sorry you had to go thru that. I live in a small town, so most everyone knows everyone else and would probably stop. Not so much in a bigger town..I'm glad you are home safe..
