Road construction is not good for bike tires.
High School soccer is done for the year and now it's back to bike commuting. This is the time of year that I volunteer to drive the Salvation Army bell ringers to their posts. It gives me a reason to bike commute again, and a reason to update this blog. There were a couple of commutes before the holiday but yesterday actually began the regular driving duties. It was also my first flat in years. Without losing a beat, that tire was back in service lickity split. But, but, the nut that holds the skewer on the wheel fell off. For the life of me I couldn't find it and consequently couldn't put the rear wheel back on. Call the wife, get a ride to work.
I did manage to find the part when I returned after working and everything worked out. I did get to ride again today.
Part of the scallop and fishing fleet is in port.
