2:48 Baby

That's 2 minutes and 48 seconds that tastes like one grand. I just changed my tires about 10 times. Got the rear tire stuck so bad that swearing and plyers and the need of my husband were involved to get it back off the bike. Lesson learned...which is good - because that would have sucked to do that during a race.

2 mins 48 seconds was my record tire changing time. Thanks Steve, for making me practice practice and practice again!

Now I'm off to do a 30 mile hilly solo ride. I'm so not into solo rides... But at least it's a nice day! Later Gators.

Hahaha ... you think we're alligators! Sometimes it takes me over two minutes to tie my shoe in a race - a flat tire would take me 'til noon!

Jeannie said...
