A brand new road bike. At first I was not sure how much I would ride it. Sure as a child I racked up miles and miles on my sweet blue 10 speed but more than 20 years had passed and fear of cars etc. had changed my passion for riding….. so I thought.
Last year the bug bit and I began riding anywhere between 50 and 100 miles each week. This year I was bitten a little more and geared up with some winter gear that opened the door to cold weather riding. It really is great if you have the right layers on.
During a group ride this past Sunday I watched a girl stand on the side of the road with a flat tire and all of the tools to change it but no clue on exactly how to do it. This girl was not me but it very well could have been. So last night I attended a free clinic at our local bike shop and I am proud to say that I am now able to change my own tire. The instructor was VERY patient which was good. He really took his time to teach us what to look for when changing a tire so that you don’t rush it and end up on the road again another mile down the road. I changed mine 4 times.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
