Never Go On A 20 Mile Ride

One of these days I should test my pump and make sure it still works. It's been riding around on the bike for thousands of miles without being needed. I might also want to check my spare tubes and patches, they have about the same miles on them riding around in the seat bag.

The only time I had to walk with a bad tire was before I understood I needed to carry something to boot a ripped tire.  Capri Sun pouches work pretty good, anything made with Mylar.  I have used money too, didn't have a dollar bill so I used a five.

This post makes me think about when I was a kid and I'd run out of the house, jump on the bike and go.  I guess we were never very far from the house though.

I miss the days when we could spend an entire hour on our bikes while staying within a half-mile radius of the house.  Nowadays that doesn't stay interesting for long.

My flat-tire-walkin' shoes were a lot more comfortable then too.

I was. In fact, last night I was about as far from the house as I used to go, as a kid. Funny thing, as a kid, I only remember one flat - we left my bike at a farm and my buddy and I rode double the four or five miles home. The only other mechanical I remember was my buddy broke a chain and I towed him home about five miles.

Well, there was the time I ran into the back of my sister's bike, drove the point of the fender into the tire and we had to walk about four miles home..... I remember this because she still brings it up, on occasion.....
