Sat 6/3/17 temps in the 60s. a light sprinkle passed thru. wore short sleeve, shorts & sandals. rode up to work & back. as I was snacking at the Tewksbury gas station, sitting next to my bike, it suddenly goes flat. a guy coming out offered to give me a ride home. he had a pickup. slightly creepy but I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. told him I had 22 miles to go, 2 tubes, patch kit, 3 cartridges of CO2 & hand pump, plus was sitting at a gas station w an air pump, so I had no excuses. I'll be fixing it & riding home

all time record for getting my act together and on the road late
left the house at 4:31 pm (would not be home again for 4.5 hrs)
got to the gas station next to the office at 6:09 pm (1 pit stop to adjust saddle angle & move sportcam from stem to bars)

21.55 miles
32.4 max
14.7 avrg
1 hr 27 min saddle time

snacked on DD hash browns, peanut butter crackers & vanilla muscle milk
fixed flat & changed rim tape. still so happy w my schrader valves

left for home 7 pm
reached home 8:52 pm (just after dark)

whole ride 43 miles
32.4 max
13.5 avrg
3 hrs 11 min saddle time
