I followed up my traditional Christmas Day Century with another century today. I felt pretty good most of the day. I went north today towards Los Angeles. I didn’t know where I was going but I just wanted to venture out in a different direction. I didn’t care for all the traffic and signals. On my return leg I found the bike path in Marina del Rey, along the water’s edge that was MUCH better.
I made a rookie mistake today. I went out riding deep section wheels without having a tube with a long enough valve stem. I flatted in Culver City which was 50 miles into my ride which was an out and back– essentially I was 50 miles from home. Luckily, a very nice man by the name of Ruben gave me a lift to a bike shop nearby. I purchased two tubes and was on my way. My rookie mistake cost me an hour off the bike 😦 All’s well that end’s well- I got my century in afterall.
