Pictures are worth way more than words.

Thatâ€™s all the good pictures from the weekend. Today I started playing with my Garmin Edge 705, but ended up with a flat tire five miles from home and no spare tube/bike pump. I called my dad, who came out with a spare wheel to hand me and a frame pump, but when I tried to fill the tire on the new wheel it actually lost air. My frame pump apparently doesnâ€™t work, so after about five minutes of trying to figure it all out I had two flat tires and was lucky to have a ride home. My theory up to this point was that flat tires only happen when you expect them (and therefore bring repair tools). This was the first time Iâ€™ve had a flat that I was not prepared for (after many many many many miles of unprepared cycling.), and hopefully itâ€™s my last. I also got a new pair of Rudy Sunglasses â€“ the Zyons â€“ and a new helmet â€“ the Rudy Project Kontact+. Iâ€™m not sure yet if the helmet looks better than my old one, but itâ€™s way lighter weight and more comfortable.
