This was my first last tire ever while biking! So I just wanted to go on a quick ride to the waterfront before sundown. I was riding on tennessee st. going downhill then suddenly I see my front tire on my Trek go flat. OH MY!! No camelback, no phone, no extra tube, just me and my bike. At this time the sun had already set. So I had to walk home in my clipless shoes. NO FUN AT ALLLLLLL!!!

VJO to BENICIA on the Peugeot

This is my first long ride on the Peugeot. I was kind of skeptical because maybe I would get a flat tire. So I went on my way prepared with an extra tubes and tools. Going to benicia was fine. I found the higher gearing was helpful. I was cruising most of the way there. The only hill that is a problem is the Rollingwood hill before the cemetery. Coming back to Vallejo was just tough on this bike. Going up Benicia Rd by SPSV was tough. I was on the lowest gear and was huffing and puffing up the hill. I guess I was out of shape. In all, I would take the Peugeot more often on longer rides. But I just trust my Trek.
