No ride this weekend

The weather was a bit stupid this weekend so I didn't get the chance to go out for a ride. Instead I got the chance to go out for a brisk walk instead at our local park.

Rear wheel update

Took the rear wheel to the bike shop and got charged $15 to tighten the loose spoke. Looked true when he showed it to me. Fingers crossed it will not loosen again.

Parra Park 12/01/2012

Rear wheel still an issue. Noticed a significant wobble which was what was causing the wheel to rub against the brakes. It turns out that it was due to a lose spoke. Very happy with average and dist especially since the brakes started rubbing again half way through the ride. 

Great day for a ride
