When I started my commute this morning, my bike chain was quite squeaky and in bad need of some lube. I hadn't noticed it soon enough to turn and go home to remedy this. I knew a friend who lives along my route hosted an early morning run on Fridays. He is also a cyclist. As I got to his house I saw a couple of bikes out front. Some of the runners bike to his house, run, have coffee, then bike home. I stopped and went inside. I first asked, "Do you have any Grey Poupon?" They laughed and offered me coffee. I said I didn't have time but was in need of some bike lube. He said of course and took me out to the garage. It made a big difference and I could stop worrying about the squeaky chain.

Oh, and it was only 55F with a nice little tailwind. A great, less squeaky ride the rest of the way to work.
