Changing a Flat Tire

Knowing how to perform a quick tire change is important for any competitive triathlete. Whether it’s to get back on the road to resume your training ride or to limit your time losses on race day, it’s a worthwhile skill to practice and perfect.

Bike 101 Rescheduled for May 16th

Let’s go for THIS SUNDAY 5/16, which seems to be the date most people can do. Please rsvp if you are going to ride first starting at 10 a.m…my house to Stony Creek is 20 miles or to Guilford Center is 30. As much as I want to, I will not be riding as I’m still recovering from my concussion/neck injury.
The bike 101 part will start approximately 11:30 (or when everyone is back from the ride). Steve and Ed said they are available for some mentoring, plus my neighbor John (the pro cyclist). We’ll start the grill for a bbq lunch (burgers, dogs, veggie burgers)…any other requests for food? Beer?

See everyone on Sunday! Looks like great weather too!
