First out Peddibone with the bike club. I fell behind on the hills and then got a flat. My feet were getting cold as well. It was right around freezing, clear with a stiff north wind. I was able to pump up the tire and made it home. Had some tea, warmed up and fixed the tire. Actually the rear tire was pretty shot. 3,000 miles on the Compass Baby Shoe Pass might be all you get. I swapped the front to the rear and put on one of the Soma GR tires on the front. I may be shopping for some sturdier tires soon. Once the bike was back together I headed out to Philomath. It warmed up to about 40 and it was a very nice ride, with the wind mostly at my back.
