Cold Morning Ride to Tommy Thompson Park
For reasons still unknown to me, I decided to drag my butt out of bed and go for a ride down to Tommy Thompson Park (aka, Leslie Spit or Outer Harbor East Headland). It was cold, and I’d neglected my bike, so it took a bit for the cables and chain to loosen up.
Nevertheless, I was soon chugging along the point, enjoying the exercise and the unique view of the city (first time for me here). Plenty of ducks were to be seen, along with an (apparently) feral cat.
On my way back out, pedaling into a nasty headwind, I felt like I was going even slower than usual. Turns out my rear tire had gone flat. A 1 km walk and a call to Beck Taxi later and I was taking the lazy way out. Success? You bet!
Anyway, some pics for your enjoyment (from my thoroughly crappy phone camera).
