Bike and Hike

The rear wheel on my mountain bike is on its last leg (axle in hub is jacked), and a new one has been ordered, but I thought I'd chance it and hit some of the less rugged fire roads in the woods out back. The hub held up okay, but the inner tube did not. Flat tire and I didn't have a spare, so I hiked back. Didn't mind that really. In fact, I took a longer way back so I could enjoy the day since it was so nice out.

Mountain biked 1.8 miles @ 9.0 mph/avg.
Hiked 1.9 miles @ 17:54/mile pace.
Trails and fire roads.
Moderately hilly.
Lower 60s, sunny.
Shorts, short sleeved shirt.
