Today I decided that instead of going for a run, I would go on a biking/art adventure. I was hoping to get almost downtown on my bike whil stopping to sketch and take pitures along the way. It started off going really well, however once I got near Douglas Dale, there was some construction. I was trying to find a way around it when I heard a nice hissing sound coming from my rear tire. Soon is was deflated. Unfortunately I had only thought about this happening but had decided not to take any precautions against a flat since I knew I had all day to sort out problems such as that.
I ended up walking my bike 5 km to the deer valley Zellers and bought a patch kit and pump. After various fumbled attemps I finally got the tube fixed and was back on the road.
In the end, it was alot of fun. I will try it again and will hopefully have more art to show for it.
