Something obviously doesn’t want me to ride bikes at the moment.
Yesterday I rode out to an 18th birthday party, when I came to ride home again the rear tyre was totally flat, and typically I hadn’t bothered taking any tools or spares with me. Today I headed out on the Stiffee for a quick ride and after 2.5 miles of climbing decided my left shoe was a bit loose, so I reached down to tighten it only to discover I’ve snapped the instep strap off my Sidi Dominators. I had to turn round and coast back home again.
I’ve given up for the day, I’m not going to risk a third failed ride in one weekend. I’m also going to have to find some other shoes to ride to work in tomorrow.
