Augusta Bike Breakdown

We all headed out to Defiance, Missouri for our pretty much annual winery bike trip to Augusta.

Things were going fine until we arrived at a section of the bike trail that was closed due to flooding. There was a detour path but it was much rockier. My newly renovated bike lasted about 5 minutes before one of its slender tires popped. I'm accustomed to riding bikes with like monster truck tires so I hadn't even considered such a thing being a problem. I walked back to the rest stop and Lydia rode back to get the car. I still had fun despite the mishap.

I'm beginning to learn about the joys of riding a bike with a friggin leather seat. Turns out, if it gets wet, either due to rain or even body sweat, it will dye your butt brown. It's quite a feature.

Good news was there was still beer left when we drove back to Independence.
