Another bike shop run to Springfield MO
Pete's Fan Club
Dave and Pete rode 72 miles from Ash Grove MO to Hartville, MO. Up and down, and do it over again. It's 103 degrees again. They arrived in Hartville about 2:00. Dave was having trouble with his crank - slipping. We figured that the only bike fixit shop would be in Springfield about an hour away by car. So load the bikes and off we went. Likely the bike shop would be closed on a Sunday, but we drove to one anyway to find out when they would be open on Monday. This one was open! The crew jumped right on it and lubed the crank well and we were otta there in 45 minutes. There was no lodging in Hartville so we are in a La Quinta Inn in Springfield. Air Conditioning on a 100 degree day is a dripping of Grace.
