Utilitaire - 8 of 12 - Bike Shop

Date: 3/4/2012
Destination: Bike Doctor Arnold
Miles Completed: 2.3 miles round trip.
Learned / observed: Bike Doctor is open until 5 on Sundays, just made it.
Dark Ride: No

The day after a wet brevet is bike hygiene day.  So I cleaned the road grime off, then went to the bike locker to fetch a tube and restock the on-bike spare after changing a flat yesterday.  That's when I discovered I was out of tubes and CO2.  Fortunately, BD Arnold is only 1.1 miles away, just right for a quick utilitaire, and I had just enough time to get to there for a couple tubes and CO2 before they closed.

'Cause you know Mr. Murphy and his laws would strike if I tried to commute to work tomorrow without carrying spare tube.
