After I aired up the tires, and lubed some of the moving parts, Debbie and I went for a little ride around the block. It was a bit too cold for Debbie, so it was "Only once around the block!" It was nice to get out, and just enough to get me wanting to bike some more!
So, bike some more I did. I didn't have any particular destination in mind, so I set out heading north on 13th Street, and turned onto Waterford Avenue. As I made my way up the hill to the railroad crossing, suddenly I heard a POP! My rear tire was flat, forcing me to walk the bike the 1/2 mile back home. :( Not to worry, I have a pair of new inner tubes waiting to be installed, and it will be changed shortly.
Hopefully, next time I'll get a little farther... ;)
