Yesterday was spectacular in terms of biking weather...warm, clear, no wind. So, I hit the trail along the Schuylkill River for a 40 mile ride. Much to my surprise, in the first mile I saw four riders all in the same jerseys with each wearing a backpack with a floor pump in it. I thought this was very strange. Within the next four miles I saw two other groups of riders (each group wearing jerseys that were the same) with backpacks and floor pumps jutting out of them. Within the next 6 to 8 miles I figured out there was an FOP Police Survivors Benefit ride taking place. What I can't figure out is why so many of them were carrying floor pumps in backpacks. By the end of the ride I had counted 37 riders with a floor pump on their back. Anyone have any ideas?
