Had a chance to escape a bit early, run home, change and jump on the bike. I headed down 35th, and through Luna Park where I blew my rear tire. Quick change and I was up and running again until my front tire felt a little squishy. ANOTHER flat! Must have ran through a pile of glass and didn’t notice. Luckily I had a second tube and another cartridge but I played it safe till I got to Leschi where I ran into a couple Thumbprint guys and Eduardo from Cucina. I wished them a happy ride and hit the bike shop to grab another tube and CO2. I shot across Mercer and started my first ride up Newport from Factoria to Eastgate and stayed in the saddle the whole time just working on quick powerful circles. turned around and headed back down and immediately did my second one this time out of the saddle all the way up. I pushed the third one as hard as I could and took a bit of time to rest at the top, spinning though one of the neighborhoods which let me witness a repo guy driving away from a VERY angry guy watching his Ford Superduty get pulled away.
