Just waiting for July and Greg’s new set of challenges
Meanwhile just regular stuff type rides with a few episodes worthy of note — maybe.
Le Tour keeping the tote company before a ride across town to the park
Did we have an ‘event’?
Yes, we did
After circling the park and heading back east, a turn from 6th Avenue on to Elm street resulted in an instant flat tire.
No choice but to start trudging east for a mile and a half
Halfway there, I decided to try the CO2 inflator, knowing how quickly the tire went flat it was unlikely to help.
The inflator worked great! Never had tried it before
(and yes it does get incredibly cold!)
The tube however had other ideas an immediately went flat again.
Smokey and the Bandit time — east bound and down . . . .
Here is the little culprit
Patched up the tube (still Old School here) and all went well
Le Tour back in the game and ready for a road test ride
(Ya know how they say you can’t change just one thing)
All was back in order 🙂
Another ride south of town and around the park, this time on the Raleigh. I spotted a garage sale going on with a bicycle in the driveway, and checked it out on the way back home
Turns out the guy is a real artist with stained glass, and sculptures using bicycle parts
Schwinn frame now a bracket for an outdoor lamp
Pinwheel of stained glass on a bicycle wheel
Another light fixure
More stuff inside, including some beautiful stained glass windows
Blackburn mini pump for 4 dollars — never used
It came home with me.
Sooooo – what have you guys been up to?
