So, this morning, 6am. i'm up and i'm ready. about to head to the park for my (hopefully) regular 20km jaunt before work. I'm going through my usual morning ritual of turning on the lights and checking my tyres when i discover my front wheel is a flat as a tac.
I rode it on saturday morning without issue, i then went away for the weekend so hadn't touched it since 9:30am saturday morning. Not sure how it would have gone flat in that time but such is life.
So i set about fixing the puncture. Oops, my repair kit is out of glue, fortunately i have a spare tube that i always carry and we're away. So, i haven't changed a tube in forever, admittedly the last 2 times i've just taken it to the bike shop to change, but at 6am it was not an option today. took a little while to figure it all out. 30 minutes later it was all done, but my plans were dashed.
A cruisy ride in with the bike bus and a good chat was the order of the day.
Will have to make up for it tomorrow morning!! :)
