Yesterday I was bad an ate a burrito and an apple empanada from Taco Bell. It was the .99 cent burrito and I figured it was ok since I’m now riding 5 days a week. I was going to up it to 7 days a week and I was kinda thinking about how important it was that I ride today to burn off that bad idea lol.
So I got up this morning at 4:30am as usual, by 5am I was in the patio getting my bike and it felt a little strange. The back tire was totally flat. I noticed yesterday that it kept getting low for some reason, I had to pump it up twice during my ride. So I just went back to bed and figured today is a wash, I’ll probably have to get a new tube.
When I woke up I got up and went out there to take off the tube so I can at least seal the hole. After all it is the kind of tube with the green slime inside of it so it’s supposed to seal itself and I guess it did because I put it in a bucket of water (pumped up) and there were no air bubbles. So I put it back on and pumped it back up. It’s sitting upside down in my back yard right now so I can keep squeezing it to make sure it’s still pumped up lol.
Tonight I’m going to check on it again to see if it’s still pumped up or not. If not then I’ll just have to get a new tube tomorrow and figure that today and tomorrow are days off and I’ll have to ride 5 days in a row. I would like to go buy a new tube anyway just to have a spare on hand. I had a spare but this guy that we know named Brazil came to our house the day I had my accident, he wanted to borrow my bike for a while so he can get to work cause he got a new job and I told him about my accident. He said he had a flat tire and I said well that’s no problem, I have a spare tube you can have lol. So now I need another spare tube.
I also need a new head light anyway so I want to at least get to the .99 cent store while we’re out and get a new one. They are cheap and take batteries but I need them as backup because my generator is screwing up and it’s making it very difficult for me to ride and feel safe. I’m mainly afraid I’m going to get a ticket if my back light goes out during the ride or if my head light isn’t bright enough too. So I need new ones. And $1 is better than paying $15 or $20 for the same exact thing.
