Commute Fail

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.
