Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse…

It did! Anna got ANOTHER flat. That’s right, her 4th flat of the day. As we moved to a side road and as Anna tried not to go postal, a guy pulled over and asked if we needed help. We told him our situation and he said he has 26″ tires he could give us. We were skeptical, people usually do not have that size tires laying around. But, EGG ON OUR FACE, he comes back 5 minutes later with a tire that works! Our Savior, Steve. So awesome. He gave us directions to Beacon and we were finally on our way. He even appeared in Beacon as we arrived an hour later! He said he came because his girlfriend said to check on us. What an AWESOME GUY. The universe is fighting our arrival to NYC, but if the amazing people we have been meeting have anything to do with it, we will be there on Sunday, safe and happy.

  1. HI Arina, and Molly.

    It was nice meeting you yesterday in the Rhinebeck Bike shop.
    Bummer about the additional flat.. You really lucked out with the guy with the 26″ tube.
    Hope you make it back to the big Apple..

    all the best

    • John, thank you SO MUCH for that tube. Turns out the tire was shot, so it was indeed lucky that Steve appeared out of the blue with a new tire! You guys provided us with a much needed morale boost that day. -Anna
