Very Warm Weather

Since Sunday last we have been at 15C / 60F. Friday is supposed to be 18C/67F so I've been chipping ice away in the lane and I now have an escape route!!
We'll see what Friday brings.

It was 82 degrees at our office in Kent, WA today.

Got up to about 50 here and that was enough for the first ride of the season for me. Rode into work, just a short trip, just long enough for my fingers to hurt but it was great. Leaving work, she wouldn't start. Newer battery, didn't know what was going on. Apparently, that little red switch needs to be flipped to the "on" position in order to start. SMH.

Ok..I was NOT home-schooled, but that is neither hear nor their.

First day of Spring...
Not too cold and no rain in the forecast, so I decided to take the bike to work...a 60 mile round trip. I don't put the bike away for the winter so this is not the first time I've taken it out this year but...It's the first day of Spring.

Got myself all geared up, loaded up the bike with my office work and took off down the road.

It didn't take long to feel that the steering was hard to control. I know what that usually means.
I pulled over, and even though the tires looked full, a quick check with the gauge showed that the front tire was down to about 15 pounds.

What!?! I just checked it a few days ago.

I wobbled back home and took the car to work. There was no time to pump up the tire and I wouldn't have bothered if there was...If there was a leak, I didn't want to start losing pressure along the way.

Either it developed a leak, something is wrong with the valve, or some stoopid pig-fart kid decided to let out some air for giggles.
I inflated the tire today and I'll check it in a couple of days too see if it's leaking again. If so...New tube or valve. If not...the hunt will be on for some stoopid pig-fart kid.

I don't need a compass to know which way the wind shines.
