A week ago I was basking in the sunshine, and really enjoying some nice long bike rides... But here in Minnesota we are back to winter it seems... So my bike will be going back in the garage for a little longer.
I'm not sure if you can see the flurries in this photo... but it sure is cold and grey looking in my backyard!
Meanwhile... at the Sibley Bike Depot:...it seems bright and sunny as ever. Sibley is a community bike shop here in the Twin Cities where I volunteer, and also learn a lot about bike maintenance by taking free classes. I'm currently in a wheel building class with about 15 students... and do you notice anything missing from this photo?... maybe some ladies?
Yep... it's a man's world out there. And I am the only woman infiltrating this class.
But guess who was the first to finish lacing her spokes?... Oh yes, yours truly. Take that boys!
Broken spokes out on the open plain?... no problem!
