A little Mishap on the BCT today
WARNING VIEWING THESE PICTURES MAY CAUSE THE STOMACH TO TURN A BIT
So 8 of us set out this morning to ride from RS to TM, a few of us were going to to do the LPL but we didn't make it. One guy tore a tire open pretty good, put a tube in it and was bulging out. So he ended up hiking out, it took him about 1 1/2 hours to walk back to RS trail head.(he didn't want to try to and patch it from the inside) And then as a few of us were waiting for the rest of the group at the first road you come to ( about 7+ miles in) I got a call from my son who was riding with us, he said that he gashed his knee open pretty good, so I rode back a little ways and they had just wrapped it and we rode back to the rode crossing. We took a look at the gash and decided he probably shouldnt ride anymore. We kind of figured out where we were and that some of us would ride the road to TM trail head and get the truck, as we were riding some really nice guys in there beefed up rock crawlers stopped and we told what was going on and they offered to go pick up my son.They drove him about 3 miles until one our guys showed up in my truck. Just wanted to share this story for a few reasons, one being that I was really impressed that these guy's helped us. I even offered them $ for gas and they refused it. And the second reason be careful, but things happen so try to be prepared and we were. In the end the guys thanked me for showing them a great trail and said they really enjoyed the part that we did ride. I am attaching some pictures for those that like to see pictures.
EDIT These pictures were taken before we cleaned and taped it.
