I’m sure I’ve said it before, I love riding the tall bike but don’t like the attention it draws and that keeps me from riding it as much as I’d like. A weekday on back roads and few even gave me a second look.
Switching things up. This is how I spend a lot of time in the garage.
Flat tire while out yesterday. Even with an extra tube and plenty of patches, I still ended up walking 3 miles home.
Not sure what happened but I think the tire, tube and rim strip slipped on the rim and that ripped the rim strip and the tube on a spoke nipple. It happened right when I took off from being stopped. The 2nd tube I installed got a cut at the valve stem after about a mile. May have something to do with tire being underinflated is all I can think of.
I wasted a lot of time and patches trying to get either of the tubes to hold air before admitting defeat.
Thursday I attended our annual 20 Inch Night at the pub pedal. This was an unscheduled rain date as we had severe weather on the original date. Still a pretty good turn-out. I rode the 20 inch wheeled fatbike that I recently modified.
The bar owner at our usual meet-up spot led us on a ride through the bar on our little bikes.
Saturday we attended this annual event that is hosted by our friends. We ride to lunch and a few beverage stops before returning to our host’s home for a Cajun dinner. Despite the rain it was a great time as always.
