Got them Both

The ending to my bike ride yesterday pointed out how different riding in Florida can be from riding in the North.

It was a great ride with Chris. We talked much of the way and enjoyed being out in the mid-morning sunshine and breezes. It was the end of the ride, however, which taught me a valuable lesson. 

As we ended the ride at our condo entrance, workers were trimming the palms. I did not think much of it and rode my bike through a small collection of debris. A terrible mistake. It turns out that the small thorns on some of the palms can penetrate bike tires.

Both my front and back tire were flattened, although only the front was obvious when I went out to buy tubes.

I bought two tubes, just in case and when I returned home the back tire was flat. 

I managed to get them both.

Two for two!
