More bike problems

 Today I cycled to Winsloe, then to the Belvedere Ave where I got this photo of seagulls by the pond near UPEI.  It was windy, 35 gusting 50 km/h from the south. Some times the wind will bring the seagulls inland.

I started with the old bike, but realized the first time I used the brakes there was a problem. As I was only a few hundred meters from home I returned and checked it out. The problem is that the rim split from wear by the brake pad. It is understandable when you realize the wheel is 25 years old and close to 40,000 km on it.

  1. Yikes! When it rains, it pours, though ... at least it didn't rain on these trips
