No longer worried about flat tires

August 2, 2012 - Categories: Uncategorized

My bicycle’s rear wheel has a fast leak. I pumped it up this morning, and by the time I returned to my bike after a good day at the office, it was as smooshy as a cat on a hot day. I refilled it with the pump I carry in my emergency kit – first time to use it! – and headed home, which is about an hour’s ride. (Mostly due to one steep hill near the end; it takes me about forty minutes the other way). Flat again when I got home.

W- will help me fix my bicycle this weekend. He used to be a bike courier, and he knows all sorts of things. =)

The neat thing is that this experience shows me that I don’t have to worry too much about a flat tire, especially on a decent day. Good to know!
