Before I left I filled tired to 14 psi, I figure it would be easier to remove some air psi then to add some.
After about 4 miles of riding I knew I needed to drop some air psi in tires to get them to have a larger profile to hook up better, and stop the sliding around.
I was unscrewing the rubber cap on the presta valve and didn't realize I was removing the entire valve core. I did realize what I had done when all the air was blowing out the stem and I simultaneously realized I had forgotten to bring along my air pump. PANIC HITS!!!! I hurriedly screwed the cap back in that had the valve core attached to it. The air loss stopped and I had about 2 psi in my front tire.
The ride was beautiful out here tonight. The solitude gave way to reflection, I shut my IPOD off to listen to the silence.
I rode an hour out and and hour back. I would have liked to have stayed out longer. As Arnold would say, "I'll be back."
