I had to go to the lab yesterday for a series of 28 weeks pregnant tests. Walking to the lab that I like (there's this lady there that is so good at taking blood, you barely realize it's happening) takes about 20-25 mins. Walking in the snow actually slows me down quite a bit. No traction! Driving takes about 10 minutes once you factor in the lights and the parking. Well, factoring in the parking probably means 15 mins. The bike takes me 8.
Upon getting into the garage I discovered that my beater bike had a flat! Very demoralizing:( Particularly because it's so cold out there... hanging out in the freezing garage to change it doesn't strike me as fun. And the bike is SO filthy. And our little bike fixing stand is barricaded in the shed. Sigh. So I rode pretty Pashley through the yucky snow again.
Poor Pashley. She's such a trooper.
