What a day....I was reminded of Murphy's Law today. "Whatever can go wrong, will go wrong"
Anybody have one of those monday mornings?
Woke up late, quickly get ready
load panniers (both)
find bike on the ground in garage
put it right side up & load panniers
Roll it out, walk back to garage and close it
Walk out..about to hop on...and I realize a rear flat, (hence why it probably fell over) **NEW TIRES & TUBES WERE PUT ON, on SATURDAY ** WTF???
Put bike in garage, go inside with both panniers
Remove regular clothes put on cycling clothes, lycra shorts, pants (need padded short for my mnt.bike)
can't wear running shoes b/c i have clipless pedals.
Remove half my load from pannier, re-pack my stuff in different bags, out I go!!!
Attach seatpost rack(basket) to bike, put in bag, and wear backpack
** by this time im sweating buckets, late and frustrated **
Hop on, seat starts swinging from side to side. Get off, and try to tighten my seatpost clip. It was stripped. Back to the garage, use a wrench to force it on.
Get back on bike-- tire low on air
Bike to gas station and put air in tire, and arrive to work with a few minutes to change.
ARGH:::::::: Although it could have been worse, it was enough to start me on the wrong foot.
Anybody have these Murphy Law days?
