Tour de Gap
Buffalo Gap, Texas
July 22, 2017
Line up time for an 8 a.m. start. Jerry took some better pictures than I did so with his permission, I am using some of his start and riders shots. Thanks for your help, Jerry.
It was reported that about 270 of us lined up for the start. Present from San Angelo in the line up were:
(Had to add iconic pose by Jeffri started at the Tour de Agua)
Mel and Martha
Steve, Brenda, and Matteo (Not pictured but Marcus was somewhere in the crowd)
and a group shot of Jerry, Brian, Jeffri, Rick, and myself back row.
Not many shots were taken for the first 30 or so miles as the terrain was flat for the most part or with slight inclines. And of course the forecasted 13 mph wind was in our face, so we just tried to pace- line and endure.
Rick to the rescue. Lady on the right had a flat tire. Seems just about every tour, Rick will stop and help someone with a flat. David, Brian, and lady are looking for a spring that sprang from her wheel housing. (Never found it).
Once again we wish to thank the Abilene, Buffalo Gap, and Taylor County organizers, sponsors, and volunteers for all of their hard work in pulling the ride together and making the ride enjoyable and safe for all. Thank you!!
