you know luck is with you when...

So today Kayla, shodoshan and I took a nice bike ride to IHOP. This was about 5.4 miles each way or just under 11 miles round trip. I planned us a route that had separated bike lanes the entire way, and it worked out nicely.

Well, except for one thing. That being a large razor protruding from the rear tire. Yes, I somehow managed to randomly pick up a large razor from the road. But I really have to say I was lucky because it happened directly in front of a Big 5 Sporting Goods store. I went inside, bought another tube and a bike pump, and fixed it right there. (thank gods for modern flip/nut axle clamps) I dunno, 10 minutes maybe and we were on our way. It worked out quite nicely.
