Calm, Cool & Connected

All photos taken on August 18, 2022. In the middle of a hot spell, we pondered what to do to get out and about.

All photos taken on August 14, 2022. On August 9, 2022, when I was getting the bikes out to ride them to the bike shop, I found the back tire on my bike was flat. I quickly pumped it up and rode it to the shop as quickly as possible, where it was again flat.Continue reading “233 TOO/TO/TWO?”
