Bike or Mule

02008-08-21 | Bicycle, Touring | 5 comments

This morning I discovered that the rear tire of my bike had deflated, walked the bike back up the hill to my house and drove. When Jon pulled his bike out of the shed he keeps it in, he discovered that he too had a flat rear tire… What are the odds? Jon says that as he was opening the door, he thought how weird it would be if his bike had a flat tire as well…

We met for breakfast and saw this very cool cargo bike:

Well, it does have 8 speeds. You could put your guitar in front and pedal to local shows.

In a few years you might just find me on a horse or bicycle, with a guitar and laptop strapped to my back, riding from gig to gig. Or, maybe this itinerant mariachi with international connections should use a mule-drawn cart…

    No w THAT was a coincidence not a miracle.

    A good mule is hard to beat but not so easy to come by.

    I kid you not, I went to take my bike out this afternoon, and it had a flat rear tire. What’s up?

    That’s happened to me before getting ready to leave to meet someone for a ride…take out the bike and flat tire. What’s worse is flatting out in the middle of the woods, hence, the tube and patch kit I carry in my hydration pack. It sucks pushing a bike for more than a 1/2 mile.

    Just a thought to “What’s up?” Remember the times in your life when something happened and you wondered, “Why me?” Take comfort in knowing that there maybe someone else experiencing , “What’s up?”
    It is always good to find out that you are not alone in an experience.
