I was all excited on Sunday morning to get my bike out of storage and hit the pavement. After locating my helmet, my biking gloves, my reflective jacket and searching fruitlessly for my pant protectors (yes, I know they look geeky) I arrived at my bike fully decked out, slightly sweating and eager to feel the wind in my hair (er, on my face) once again.
My bike had other ideas. Both tires were flatter than a prairie highway, the gears grinded like my teeth in my sleep and the chain drooped with an evil smile. I was deflated.
Don't let this happen to you. Bring your bike to Central this Wednesday at noon and learn how to tune it up with the help of the good folks from the Good Life Community Bike Shop. Yes, from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. you can bring your bike into the library and learn how to get it back on the road.
