I had a great time at the Chili Wiener. I thought I may be able to ride every day after that. I was wrong.
That night we had a blizzard that left a thick blanket of snow that is still on the ground. Yesterday we had a high of 7°F. I have faith that someday Spring will come.
Today I took my bike to Swerve Bike Shop in Oberlin, Ohio for a one on one bike maintenance class with Joe. He hit stuff like fixing a flat, adjusting the derailleurs, adjusting brakes, lubrication, etc. It was money well spent. I plan to spend a lot of time in the saddle this year and this will allow me to do so with a lot less trouble. If you live anywhere close to Oberlin, Swerve is the bike shop for you.
