I rode with Rose, Greg, and Alexis yesterday, and rode to work today. It was low 40′s for the ride to work and mid 50′s for the ride home, and cloudy all day. I passed a salmon going the other way on Crowley Road just as I got into Crowley. That always seems to be the only other riders I see on my commute.
It looks like a couple of days off the bike for weather, now.
2011 days ridden to work: 19
2011 commuting mileage: 457.9
I rode to work all five days this week. My new year of riding didn’t start out too well. I got five miles from home Monday morning and flatted on the rear tire. There’s nothing more fun than fixing a flat on a January morning in the dark.
I didn’t find anything in the tire, replaced the tube and rode on to work. I got there two minutes before starting time. The tire stayed up all day, but when I started for home, it went down again, slowly this time. I pumped it up three times to get home, got the tire off in better light at home, and found a sliver of glass.
I bought a new tool box for work last week, and and have been wanting to drive to work to haul it in, but with next week’s dire forecasts, I figured I’d better ride while I can.
