Default Thanks to Good Samaritans

I was going to post this in the Ontario section but it doesn't get much traffic and I want to ensure the people who helped me today get a shout out.

Went to Port Dover Friday 13th bash today. Mega turnout and everything was peachy until I tried to leave. Traffic was horrendous and it was about a 30 minute stop and go crawl to get out of town.

It got hotter and hotter on the pavement surrounded by hundreds of bikes and I felt myself going down for the count. I signaled to your group to let me pull though into an open driveway and got my bike stopped safely before I hit the dirt.

Thank you for stopping and helping me to get hydrated and for calling EMS. I did manage to get home safely.

I didn't get your names but you know who you are. The one thing that stuck in my mind once you found out I was there alone was the one who said "You aren't alone now."

God bless you for your kindness.

Restores faith in humanity. Not everyone is out to get us when we are on two wheels. May god bless them all.

I had to get back. Not 100% right now though. I may need to hang up the riding clothes for a bit.
