Time for an extended good news/bad news routine

Open Road!
In a twitter this morning I plaintively asked for ONE dry ride this week.

Good New: I got a dry ride home (barring a puddle or two).

Bad News: A flat tyre on Commonwealth Bridge.

Good News: Getting the tyre off and finding the glass shard was pretty easy, as was mounting the new tube/tyre

Bad News: Did I mention that it was the rear wheel?

Good Karma News*: At least two cyclists offering help, one of whom provided a light when...

Frustratingly Dirty News: ...Attempting to remount the rear wheel was a painful, messy, and apparently futile process.

Embarrassing News: Finally taking the trailer hitch off the rear skewer and remounting the wheel in about 30 seconds.

Good News: Arriving home to find a box of cafe press goodies from leecetheartist. There may be photos later, I quite like the Endeavour mug and the Brown Falcon is simply fabulous on a black T-shirt.

*Yes, I do make a habit of offering assistance to cyclists who are in trouble. What goes around...


Tired now.

Turned out okay, then, the mug.

Sorry to hear about your flat tyre woes, arcie!

I'm still waiting for my trike to come back...

Thanks! It's a bit frustrating to be down two modes of transport.
