Instagram. And white bar tape.

I use Instagram. There, I said it.

Here's an Instagram photo of Tricia's new bar tape. Expect more. With filters. And special effects. Like borders and tilt shift.

I don't often get flats, but when I do...

Tricia's Instagram post says: I don't often get flats, but when I do, I get tire-ripping, heart-stopping, bike-wobbling, explosive flats. #antioch #crapfilledbikelanes

I like the part where she told me she flatted in front of a house where a man was working in the yard. He told her "I heard that!" then asked "what are you going to do?" She said "I'm going to fix it." "Here?" he asked. Yep. And she did.

 Tip o' the hat to Park emergency boots. They helped her limp home. Don't ride in Antioch without them.

Not riding is awful

Tricia brought me home remedies. 
Loyal readers of this blog (as if they are a common as unicorns) may have noted no activity lately. Strava followers have surely noticed the same. There's a reason: Illness.

And not just a cold, but a bonus ear infection that even put a stop to my daily bike commute. I missed eight days, which is the longest I can remember being off the bike in years.

My ears are still a mess, and I have trouble hearing. But the Doctor put me on meds that are supposed to help. After my layoff I rode to work today. At last.
