First fall commute

Yay!  Finally got the cool weather commuting going.

I did not buy new tires.  Once I got one off and took a good look it was fine.  It had plenty of tread and no dry rot.  I am going with new tubes and I’m trying Slime tubes.  I am hoping that will save me from having to change a flat on my way to or from the office.  I always manage to get filthy when I change a flat.

Anywho, I changed the back wheel last night.  I’ll probably change out the front tonight and use that tube as my spare.

I also need new brake pads on this bike.  I may use that as an excuse to take a trip to the bike shop on Saturday.  I haven’t been by in forever.

As to the ride this morning, lovely cool weather.  TV said it was 48 degrees. (Just a week ago it was in the 90s).  I was actually wishing I had worn full-finger gloves.

I think Autumn riding is the best!!!
