So I went to meet up for a local Tuesday night group ride. Two weeks ago, when the sun was out, about 40+ people showed up and they left around 6:10 even though ride time is 6:00. Today I was running late but the weather was crappy. I got there at 6:10 and there were only 5 cars in the parking lot and no bikes. I didn't care, I was going to ride. I was 15 miles away from my goal of 300 miles for the month (most miles in a month for me EVER) and the loop we do is 20 miles. So I took off by myself. The ride was going great, legs felt great, and I felt like I was rockin it. Well then I felt this bouncing as I was pedaling. I thought I was probably 4 miles from the end of the ride. I pulled over and realized that my rear tire was losing air. Just then, I realized, no pump... I had forgotten it in the car. NOOOOO....
So then I called a good friend of mine and he agreed to come pick me up in exchange for some beers. While I was waiting for him to come get me, I gps'd the distance from where I was to the end, and I was exactly 5 miles away!
Hit my 300 miles for the month!!
Not bad after all!
