clean up this town
Bike paths reopen on 1 april. When they will get cleaned... and repaired is another question entirely.
We advise you not to have high expectations. On the other hand if you are a more proactive person, go to the Homey Depot and buy a real broom and then go clean a part of your favorite bike path, cycling route, short cut secret connection, sketchy corner, etc.
In a few days bikes regain control of our miniscule 0.03% of the road network.
That statistic is not factually based.
Take a close look at your tires. Do it now. Yes, a CLOSE look.
And then go and buy two new tires!
This chain has incurable grease cooties - you must wear rubber gloves to touch!
After a new chain and major cleanup effort: a clean and healthy drive train.
We are easily disgusted, but the Bertrand's chain had achieved that status. It was our fault, so we set out to make things right with our favorite bike.
And then we changed the front tire because it was time to change the front tire. The back tire has a few more rides in it, but we already got the replacement. Proactive? Us? Seems unlikely, but there's a new tire sitting beside me!
