Location: Peru, NY (High 79, Low 55)
Yesterday morning my brother and nephews left to head back home. We had a fun week exploring the area, and spending time together hanging out and playing a weeklong game of Mexican Train. It was the first time in several years that I have had the chance to spend any time with them, so that was great.
It was another perfect weather day, so after a relaxing morning, my mother and stepdad came over to the campground with their bikes and we headed off for a bike ride by Lake Champlain.
I am continuing to enjoy the results from a summer of running. Whether it’s hiking, walking, biking…I have been able to easily do them all, and I feel like I am in the best shape that I have been in a long time. It’s a great incentive to keep it up.
It was a beautiful day to be out on the lake and we enjoyed biking along and watching all the sailboats.
We stopped in the shade to enjoy a drink of water and a little snack.
It was a wonderful ride and just a nice relaxing day…well, at least for the first ten miles. Then all of a sudden my handlebars seemed to shake a bit…and before I could even stop, I saw my front wheel doing contortions and POP!!
Luckily we were only a couple miles from Peru at that point, and Harry and I walked while my mom and stepdad rode back to the campground for the car.
This is me pushing my ride.
We are taking the bikes over to a local bike shop this morning to have the wheels replaced. Harry’s are looking pretty worn also. Hopefully we should be back in biking business by later this week.
