Friday morning rolled around and I realized that my Brompton had a rear tire flat. I typically have my normal commuter ready to go as a spare. Not today, it was partially apart in the middle of a parts swap between that bike and the metrofiets.
The metrofiets was out of commission due to an issue I’ll talk about in a later post.
My mountain bike would never have gotten me to the station in time, it is geared way to low.
Luckily Elie had woken up early, so I was able to bum a ride with her on the way to breakfast.
Moral of this story is to keep your bikes maintained. Keep them in running order and clean. It really only takes about 15 to 30 minutes per week, but if done will regularly will keep you moving.
