I'm planning to go on a bike ride later. It's been a few days since I last took out my bike, and I worry that I'll eat too much food and have too little exercise. Going to school is out since the faculty was reminded that school will be closed from the 22nd of December to the 2nd day of January. It's a pity since the trip from here to school and back will consume 2 hours. Maybe I'll go to Luneta or go along the bayside.
I have two bicycles; my road bike and a japanese one with basket and lights that I use for shopping. Although the japanese bike has a mudguard, rack and basket, it has the disadvantage of being hard to fix when during times when I get a flat tire. The rim is larger than the one on my road bike, and the interior (27 by 1.38) is hard to find in bike shops. The rear wheel is also hard to unmount, you need a screwdriver to undo the brakes and a 13" wrench. My regular wrench (the one I bring with me to school) doesn't match the nut on the rear bolt. I have an adjustable wrench but it's too big to bring. Aside from the difficulty with unmounting the rear wheel, I also need to fix the front light because the dynamo isn't working properly.
