I went to get on my trainer the other day and noticed that my rear tire was running very low. I saw that I forgot to screw down the presta valve and thought that must be the cause of the problem. So I pumped it back up and it seemed to be holding air so I hoped on my trainer and through in the latest stage of Paris-nice into the VCR and peddled away. After my ride I checked the tire again and noticed that it was flat! I actually had managed to get a flat tire while riding my trainer!

Actually, as of today in VA, its time to put the trainer away. FINALLY!

I thought old man winter wants to give us one more snow storm. Seeing how I'm above the pennsylvania turnpike I think washington should get all the crappy snow.

MB1 likes to commute in it, so I'm wishing for rain tonight.

By the way Humma. What's the temps calling for VA this weekend?

... I forget the exact temperature forecast. Cool, not cold. This morning I was overdressed with a sweatshirt and windbreaker, and the snow is almost all gone except for where the really big piles were.

So we're about due for another foot.

Our weatherman isn't that great either. We call for snow and hardly get anything and when they call for rain (with temps of 30's) we get snow.

I figure we'll get one more blast before the 40's stick to staying around. They put alot of money in keeping ski roundtop open this winter.

I should get my new bike here before end of month. That's when the snow storm will hit, since the crap will finally be washed off the road.

Hope the 60's this weekend isn't a tease. It may say 60's but after the wind factor it feel like 40's. Beat's those 15 degree days I rode this winter.

Have a fun weekend Humma.

my trainer wheel's tube has a slow leak--enough to hold air for a session, then overnight become squishy. no need to fix it :). in your case, patch that sucker!
