We had another baseball practice today, trying to get ready for the spring league, which starts next week. I decided to ride my bike there, to get a little bit of extra exercise, and I promised myself that I would be more careful than the last time, when I almost got killed, twice. The trip to the ball field was uneventful, but on the way back another asshole made an illegal right turn on red at Tramway, causing me to maintain my vigilance.

I headed up the bike trail alongside Tramway, and just before Indian School, I started to get that squishy feeling from my rear tire. My armadillo tires had finally let me down, and I had my first flat, in quite a few months. I could have stopped a replaced the tube, but I knew that the rear tire was worn, and I would replace the whole thing when I got back to the house, so I made the painful decision to call for a pick up. I haven't done that in a long time.

The day was very windy again, but not quite as bad as yesterday. Temps were in the low 60s, but there was some clouds in the sky, so that made it seem a little bit cool.
