Bikes

27 01 2010

Managed to drag the bike out for a spin on Sunday. Nothing too stressful, I’d blown up the legs going for a longish (time) run on Saturday. I went to the top of the only hill around here – there’s an amusement park (Tibidabo) and a church on top (actually a couple of churches, and a radio tower a bit to the side as well). I should drag the camera up there next time, you can see the whole city. It may help if Adeladians were to think “Windy Point”.

Got to the top (still going quite fast I might add), went round the first corner on the way down. Got about 20 meters, then – Ping. Clatter, clatter, clatter.

I didn’t even have to look down, I’m getting good at recognising that noise. Another spoke had let go. It was cold and dark, so I ignored it and rode home (clatter clatter clatter).

Bike is now back in the corner of my room. I guess I could fix it…

One day I’ll again ride on good wheels. Like the set I have in Adelaide.

“One day I’ll again ride on good wheels. Like the set I have in Adelaide”.
Should read;
“One day I’ll again ride on good wheels. Like the set I used to have in Adelaide, before my bro sold them from under me and is keeping the cash”
