Three Drinker

Well, my wonderful bicycle is back home, have bike will ride! On my ride today I went through a school playground since the gate was open. I’ve never seen a drinking fountain like this and used the iPhone7 and the Lenka application for this photo. It was just a thirty minute ride with ninety degrees air temperature, and sixteen percent humidity. Nice! going to make me get off that couch for an everyday ride now! Couch Potato.

Three Drinker, not to be confused with Free Thinker!

My Bike Is Sick!

I almost completed my ride this morning and barely made it back home. For whatever the reason, the gearing system went nuts! It was jumping from sprocket to sprocket, causing me to get much less power to the ground. I had to walk the bike the remaining few hundreds of feet to my front door. This bike is new, and under warranty (awesome).

So I rolled the bike into the bed of my new truck (also awesome) and took her to the bicycle hospital. The nice British man whom sold me the bike (this is not a Wal Mart bike) seemed to know what the scoop was with the gearing system of which I have zero doubt he does. The store was abuzz with customers, I told him tomorrow is fine.

He actually seemed relieved at my suggestion which I understand. No hurry, no worries! But I’ve got to get my fat bum on that bike more, and seriously need to start using the gym facilities here. It’s so easy to set on the couch. I really don’t like the idea of becoming a seriously heavy couch potato! Would you ride your bike in our desert temps?
