Lunch Ride

Well, the truth comes out. Cars are expensive. We had a tire blow out on our car this last weekend. I hauled my bike today and drove to the tire store where they shall mount, balance, align and replace the tires. The reason for all 4 instead of the one that was destroyed is that I am too cheap to buy 4 snow tires and 4 not snow tires. Well, that has now bitten me in the ass. Instead of buying just one, I get to buy all 4 so they match.

Anyway, now my $600 bill for new car tires could have been spent on magical bicycle parts.

Now the other subject, the heat. I had to ride about 4 miles on the bike path from the tire store to my office. I stopped once to stop sweating then I got to work and I was sweating profusely and now I get to sit in it for the rest of the day.
