... slow motion and nothing you can do to help. There are these poles in the middle of the trail to prevent cars from driving on the trails and someone ran smack into it and flipped over the bike. She ended up being fine other than a cut chin and a big fright. Glad I brought the spray I was given to for my knee so I can be of a bit of help. She was a trooper and got back on and we continued the ride. Had nice conversation with fellow bikers as we traveled through this nice town. ...

We had two more stops in the afternoon. First, the British cemetery called Tyne Cot. Pristine white stones, soldiers "known only to God," a wall of remembrance, and sorrowing angels in what used to be a battlefield near Passchendaele. British forces never succeeded in taking Passchendaele, and now some of them are buried where the Germans had built bunkers to view the flat lands below. We then went to Hill 62 at Sanctuary ...

It's been three days since I wrote, so I will give you a nice, detailed description of an abbreviated three days. On the 2 of August, we had a great day. By then, Sam had mastered handbrakes and was using them well enough(That is not to say fluently). So, we decided to go on the same trail that we had went on the day before. This time we used a much shorter way out of town. Getting to the trail was infinitely easier. Once we got to the trail, it was just as beautiful as before. It was ...
