Pat S is wondering why he ever committed to a 12-day series, because that means he has to write something every freaking day, for 12 consecutive days. What was he thinking, he wonders. And more importantly, how to get through day 8, at this late hour, since he previously committed.
It was a very busy bike day and while there is a story that was planned to be told, it never will be, because, well, there just isn't time. Time marches on, and tomorrow is another day. What he can offer you, is the following photo dump. The trip up to 4th of July Pass was pretty fat-bike disappointing, but please feel free to interpret it as awesome, and in fact project hero-worship qualities on him. If you want.
