Bike Car documentary and weekend review
My copy of Bike Car was returned a few weeks ago so I watched it again this morning and folded some laundry as well. It's a great documentary and if you get an opportunity to see it I highly recommend it.
Yesterday we rode to a family-owned, organic farm near where we live and picked up some fresh asparagus and a packet of squash seeds for the garden. They should have salad greens in a few weeks so we'll be visiting again soon. I rode my Raleigh One Way and on the way back the front tire went flat. I wasn't prepared for it of course (no 15mm wrench to remove the wheel or a patch kit for that matter), and I ended up walking about a mile home. I broke it down after getting home and found the tube was sliced (it must've been pinched) and not repairable. So this afternoon we ventured to REI and bought 2 tubes, another patch kit (can never have too many), a presta adapter, and a Park 15mm wrench. I installed a new tube and it should be ready for commuting this week.
