It was here where I bought a tube to replace the tube I used to fix the flat we encountered earlier in the morning. I found a sharp piece of glass in the tire...Continental Gator Skins...The first flat we have had running these on the tandem and by the looks of the piece of glass, it would punctured any tire. One of the crossing guards further on down the trail told us a piece of tape with tacks poking through that had been found on the trail...Ain't that just special. Every rest stop had mobile bike shops at them...some had several. The prices they charge at events like these are very reasonable...to the extreme. One in our group broke a spoke and the bill to repair it...$3.00. He gave them more, and then, some more. He was just happy to be back on the trail.
The rest stops also had First Aid stations. We did not have a reason to visit any of them, although some may say if they had offered psychological help, our team should have at least been evaluated.
