Mojo's Last Report, Day 28

News from Mojo on his last Big Fix daily call in:
  • As usual for these last days, the ride ended up being longer (100 miles) and hillier (2,000 feet of additional climbing) than predicted.
  • The venerable Sheldon Brown rode the last few miles with the boys, accompanied by a group of messenger cyclists from Boston. Sheldon's wife, Harriett, also attended. It was Sheldon's first fixed-gear ride in nine months.
  • About 30 riders came out to usher the Big Fix into Boston.
  • Final stopping point was Fenueil Hall in Boston.
Total mileage for the Big Fix: 3,480 miles, with 135,000 feet of vertical gain.

The riders are now off to Maggiora's restaurant in the theater district for a big post-ride celebration.
