Gravel in the bike lane

SnOMGeddon Aftermath

The snow and ice have melted away but now we’re left with a layer of gravel in many bike lanes. It not only makes cornering a bit tricky but also increases odds of a flat tire. I spent quality time today digging shards of gravel out of my tires.

Tiny sharp rocks stuck in bike tire = potential flat.

Hopefully the street sweeper will make its way over most bike lanes soon. Until then, keep an eye on your tires and make sure you’re carrying spare tubes, tire irons and a pump!

Happy riding!
