Odd Morning

This Ride: 27.7 miles
Month: 525.8 miles
2011: 5,643.3 miles
Total since 1/1/2010: 11,763 miles

It was a tough morning. I was slow getting out of the house on the fixie for Mosey Monday.  It was good to have 11 riders out but just as we hit Old County Road, I flatted the rear tire.  It was even audible.  There seems to be no such thing as a quick flat repair on the rear wheel of the fixie, but it was changed in reasonable time.  I had a little trouble with the CO2 adapter, but got enough CO2 in the tube to ride the rest of the ride comfortably.  No offending sharp was found.  I think I simply got an in and out puncture.  That’s two rear flats on two different bikes in the last two rides.  The last flat I had before these was in February, 4,700 miles ago!

Chip & Clint were also out on fixies.  It was a pleasant morning ride with the group, which I extended slightly at the end to add a few miles.  I got back home quite late, and had to scramble to keep up with the rest of my agenda for the day.

Oh, almost forgot … personal speed record on the fixie was set this morning at 29.9 mph.  I have no cadence reading because I scavenged the battery out of the cadence sensor for the other bike and the 200k.
