State College, PA
Known as a great college town, the team was looking forward to a night out before the ride at State College. Arriving early enough to shake the travel from their legs, a few of the guys went out for a quick spin. Jeremy and Steve spent more time applying embrocation for their ride through campus than actually riding. Ben and Dave C. (Rapha filmmaker) went in a different direction and while returning from their ride Dave was suddenly hit by a woman making a quick left turn. Dave's bike wedged into her broken windshield and Dave was strewn over her hood. It didn't look good. Luckily, amazingly, Ben had avoided her car, so he was able to help look after Dave as the police and ambulance arrived. After a thorough inspection at Penn State's Medical School emergency room, Dave was discharged, bruised, scraped and torn but somehow not broken. His bike however, was finished.
Still, when the alarm sounded next morning for the ride, Dave was up before most, hobbling around with the camera to capture the day's events. Which included our fresh-legged friends from Emmaus— Dave L'Heureux, Mike Cushionberry and Selene Yeager of Bicycling Magazine.
