A flat

Riding home from work, flying out of the Broadway Tunnel. Turning onto Columbus I got a flat. I decided the best thing to do would be to stop at a bar and fix it as I sipped a beer. It worked out well.

I met an interesting character who loaned me a pump that was kinda broken but gave me enough air to get going. Can't believe I didn't have a flat repair kit on me. I sell them all day.

All I had was a sticker patch kit. No extra tube.


Always love this view, riding down this street. I'm flying down Columbus.

Crackhead cyclocross course on my beater

Went down to the marina this afternoon to "work" on the super secret Kling Clang Cross course with Blake. Hard to ride out there on my old messenger road bike with SPD-SL shoes and pedals. I'm thinking about getting a cross bike so I can race this year. I heard they cost money though, which sucks. I'll need to get some of that.


Got fourth place in the crit a few weeks ago. It was fun to get out there. I could have raced a little bit smarter at the end, but oh well.
