Due to needs at work, I had to work at my old office location today. I never liked that location much, but it’s easier to reach by bicycle than the current location. I took that as a good reason to ride to work this morning.
It was cool with light rain as I headed out. It was a pleasant, uneventful ride.
The weather had warmed by quitting time and the rain had stopped. I was looking forward to a very pleasant trip home….
Unfortunately, I had a flat rear tire.
I carry tubes, pump, and tools, so shouldn’t be an issue. Well, it was an issue. The tires on that bike are very tight on the rims. I couldn’t remove the tire.
My co-workers were already gone. My wife was on the opposite end of town playing volleyball. I used Lyft to get home, leaving my bike in the office. Boo.
At least I got my 13-mile morning ride.
