This was the same route that I took exactly a month ago except I added a few extra miles by looping around to Maple/Nelson/North today.  A very nice morning and my ribs were not too much of a bother other than climbing, but at least I could breath.  I was feeling very good today and likely would have stretched this longer except... I had a flat front tire just as I came down Dunnigan.  Thus I had to stop and fix that and decided I better just head home at that point.  At least it was a front flat which is very rare, but easier do deal with.  I can't even remember the last time I had one of those.  I had run over a small piece of wire similar to a what you find in a radial tire.  That caused a slow leak, but also more so caused a bugger of a problem to pull it out of the tire by hand!  Anyhow, not a big deal and I'm happy as I rode well even if it wasn't as fast as I thought it was.
