Well, April has been a horrible month for bike riding. Rain has come almost every day, and a few others were cold and windy. Not the best conditions for someone like me that doesn’t need much to skip a ride.
However, there were only two days where I could have ridden, but didn’t. The bad part is that there were only two days that I rode to work. There was also one weekend ride to the coffee shop. I’m hoping for better conditions in May, and I should also make myself a little less picky about conditions.
In my Goals post, I didn’t include any targets for May, so I’m going to continue my April plan of two rides per week. The weather will be better, and I hope to be more open to getting out.
Meanwhile, I’m still having trouble with my wobbly wheel. Â After having Lynn and the gang fix a broken spoke, I noticed another as I was putting the wheel back on the bike. Â Today, a mechanic found two others close to popping, and suggested a new wheel would be in order. Â Holding off for now.
Is it true that an old wheel will cause spoke breakage? Â I’m curious about the reason for that. Â Please leave me a comment below if you have any thoughts on the subject.
