Goofy commute today. As posted on google+, I wanted to take the TrekSS out, but the front tire was flat. I knew in the back of the petrified noggin that it had been flat before, but I pumped it up anyway to see what would happen. I made it, pretty spiritedly in fact. The afternoon brought complication. The plan was to jet home and drive the car back to school to pick up teenager from soccer. During the day at some point I felt the tire and, yep, pretty flat. I tried pumping it up with my old small pump and it wasn't doing jack, so I grabbed a ride with a colleague and still returned to school for teenager *and* bicycle pick-up. 7.3 total miles for the day. Not the way to train for a 100K gravel grinder. Oh well. Fun while it lasted.
