Skunk Road Kill & Flat Tires

I woke up yesterday to a flat tire.
Threw it in the car anyway, and threw my bike on top. I was meeting Diane at the Y for a short ride. I guess I need all the tire changing practice I can get. Damn I struggled with that tire!!! It took me almost 30 minutes to change it . Diane was sweet and waited for me.
By the time we got on the road at 7:30 though the traffic was monsterous and I had to cut the ride short to 12 miles instead of the 20 I'd planned becuase of it.
It was so HOT. So much road kill. A stinky skunk roadkill can you believe it? Got home. Unloaded the bike. Tire is flat again! I guess I do need more practice changing tires.

if you did the SG course, i know EXACTLY what skunk you are referring to! there was an awful smelling dead one on saturday morning.

and make sure there isn't something causing your tube to flat

Sweet? Not so much. Willing to procrastinate? Oh yeah, there we go.

Thanks for the ride! Let's do it again soon!

Just another reason to get the Cervelo. (The flat tires, not the roadkill).
