It was our first bike ride of the season, traveling the 4 kilometers to school with three kids under 10 and one dad over 40.
I was impressed with my kids can-do attitude, even though the youngest wanted to stop for a water break halfway through the 15 minute ride. That’s far for a six year old!
It wasn’t until I dropped them off and got on my bike for the trip home that I noticed something. My tires were low. They needed air.
The funny thing about bike tires is I don’t remember taking air out of them. It just went. Somewhere. Somehow. Air leaks.
