My deep dark secret

I have to come clean. I have a secret. It’s embarrassing, and sad. And I’m going to tell you it right now!

I don’t

know how to

change a flat bike tire.

RIGHT!!!!!! I can’t believe I just threw that out into the universe but it’s true. And embarrassing. I’m the worst triathlete EVER!! See the thing is, all my friends that I ride regularily with all know how and keep telling me they’ll show me when one of us gets a flat. But we never get them. They get them if I’m not there, and I’ve never gotten one. I live in fear that one day, during a race, I will get a flat and be stuck crying in the mud on the side of the road because I can’t fix my own bike tire. So, as a general rule, when things perplex me, I head out into the world wide web searching for answers. I found a video that de-mystifies the changing of bike tires and hopefully will stop me from turtling and crying when faced with such an obstacle in real life.

  1. You really ought to change a tire at least once while you are at home. It’s easier to learn at home than when you are stuck on the side of the road and it starts raining (plus the fact that you will probably not be in the best mood when you get your first flat).
