My bike and me!

Saturday, March 23, 2013

Me and my bike. The continuing saga. Nice day to ride with friends. Got bike out and tried to pump up back tire. It went flat. Stefanie to the rescue!!! Got it pumped up but not all the way. Got on it and started out. NOW it went bumpidy bump. Decided to just keep going. Very nice ride out to Rainier for Main Street cookies:) On way back decided to go back on Waldrick instead of trail. Sounded good at the time until 2 dogs came out after us. Intent on getting some meat from one of us (mostly Stefanie I think), they separated us since I was NOT going to try to go by them. Ended up calling 911 and got the Sheriff out there. They followed him down their driveway at which time we were able to reunite. Really scarey! Then we had to go up McCorkle road. Did not make it all the way up but continued on the smaller hill. Got home, took my bike to the shop and asked him to change my tire. Cool, it had a bubble in it and blew up in the shop. Ka Pow!!! Got a new tube, they pumped it up and now I should be ready for my ride tomorrow. I can hardly wait to see what my bike has in store for me:)

    Hopefully you all read about my really nice bike ride the next day. It was the NEW tire that exploded in the shop. Had a big bubble. Yesterday was uneventful and very relaxing.

    Well, at least you can say that your day wasn't boring! emoticon I'm glad that the tire tube didn't explode while you were riding your bike. I'm glad also you were able to get the police to help you get the dogs away. Hope your bike ride yesterday was a little less eventful. emoticon

    So glad the inner tube did not blow while you were riding your bike. Glad you were able to get help to get away from the dogs. Sounds like you managed to get a lot of exercise in, as well as a lot of excitement. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend. emoticon

    What adventures you and your bike have! You would be burning calories from exercise AND from NERVOUS ENERGY! I hope you get to enjoy the scenery on your future rides.
