The BackBlast:

YHC grabbed this Q 2 days prior, but then found out one day prior that an early arrival at work would be required and had to be home by 6:45.

YHC arrived @ Wawa with 15 miles down.  Fireball, Trump and Cottontail were ready and waiting, but, but, where be Pincher?  The rear flat that YHC and Pincher had experienced on the prior Tuesday ride had resurfaced, so Pincher had gone home for repairs.  Those 4 had ALL ridden the 5AM EC shift – maybe consideration needs to be given to moving start time to 5AM?

THE THANG: Not much of a thang.  Cottontail also had to be home by 6:45, so YHC decided to just repeat Hidden River until time was up.  Turning southbound into Lorraine from Wawa, wait, what’s the northbound single light?  Yup, Pincher!  A quick turnaround and Pinch quickly caught up.  YHC was able to complete 2 westbound and 1 eastbound cycle on Hidden River, with a sneak and unannounced on the westbound LWR 2015 Sprint that resulted in a personal 2nd best.  Shame on YHC for not announcing that up front.  Looks like everyone else returned eastbound then headed home for an early wrap-up.

SUMMARY: Apologies to the pax for a very sub-standard Q.  

PRAYERS: Mrs Doubtfire.
