|A scooter bike thing, but this guy kept up with the pace!|
We went up Sweetzer to Fountain Blvd and then took Fountain to the Ralphs parking lot on Fountain/La Brea - which was not quite 2 miles, and then we turned around and came back. It was a ride to experience the hard-fought sharrows that have now been laid down on Fountain, which is a major cycling street and helps connect West Hollywood to other sharrow streets. I heard Willoughby also had some sharrows laid down as well.
The ride was on the new tube I installed, and everything seemed fine. I went to work afterwards, adding another 6 miles on the bike, and still the tube seemed okay.

So, I'm going to hope the liner gets me through a few days at least. The walk wasn't terrible yesterday, but afterwards, the 1 mile ride home was horrendous with very blustery head-on Santa Ana winds. Sometimes I could hardly get over 8 mph. It's times like those where I wish I had on some fully enclosed goggles so that no debris can get into my eyes.
