First chilly morning yesterday! I'm ready for it...only because it means different clothing. Time to get out the long sleeves! Shorts and a long sleeve jersey (and maybe a vest) is my favorite kit for cycling.
Yesterday I donned said kit, minus the vest, and headed south on cty road 8. The plan was for 3 hours maybe a tad more if time allowed. Almost to the end of county road 8 I got a flat. No biggie. However when I screwed my co2 cartridge into the pump head nothing happened. The pin that "cracks" the co2 was missing! Damn. I texted a nearby friend, Brian, and he was home! This is literally the 4th time he's saved my on cty road 8! Thanks Brian.
I was back on my way but with no way to inflate a tube if I was to get another flat. For me that is a nerve racking ordeal. Thus I kept my ride a bit closer to home and easier roads to explain to someone should I need a ride.
No more flats occurred! I ended with 2.25 hours and 45 miles. Not what I planned but damn fine anyway. Bluebird skies and nominal wind...gorgeous.
I'm working Saturday so I have a short shift today. Rain is predicted (but the % is shrinking) later in the day but hoping to get 3-4 hours in. Another swim meet tonight for Brinna. Weeks are flying by!
