I needed to get out on the bike.
Scratch that, I need to go running, but the bike was calling, and I couldn't ignore it.
So, I head out on the bike towards Camp Floyd, which is about 14 miles away for a nice Saturday morning ride.
They were having some sort of Civil War reenactment going on out at Camp Floyd today
It was a great ride, and I was feeling great. So great, in fact that I decided not to go back home, but instead I decided to go into Saratoga Springs and add another 15 miles onto my ride.
On the way back into Eagle Mountain town center, I encountered some stiff headwinds, but I was almost home so I figured I could deal with them.
Here where the bad part happened.
Yes, that would be my new LG Ally with a shattered screen. Fortunately, it still works, and I can still use it thanks to a screen protector I installed on it when I first got it.
I hopped back on my bike to finish the ride home, and I discovered that I flatted my front tire. I wasn't surprised by that one, because like I said, I hit the curb pretty hard.
Then I noticed the other problem with my bike.
That would be my steel Tom Ritchey fork with a nasty bend in it. Basically rendering it useless.
So, let's sum up the ride for today.
1 phone with a shattered touch screen
1 bent fork
1 wheel that probably needs truing
1 very upset Kendall, who won't be commuting or riding until he is able to afford a new fork.
Yeah, great ride, right up till the end.
