Pinch Flats

I've been running with 23/406 Schwalbe One's on the front wheels for some time now. I keep the pressure at 90psi (85psi being the minimum). It makes for a fast and reasonably comfortable ride. But these skinny tires when run at low pressure are susceptible to pinch flats (tire compressing against the rim pinching and cutting the tube).  On the smooth roads of my old home town this wasn't a problem. Up here along the Central Coast abrupt road condition changes and the occasional unseen debris on the road is a bit of a problem when trying to avoid a hard hit on the wheel. Time to rethink tire options. Stay tuned.

Harmony and Ice Cream

Finished my ride today in Harmony (Population 18) with a meet up with Carrie and the Ice Cream truck.

 But first a ride into Cayucos

Looking out towards Morro Bay. Cayucos is to the left.

Taking a break at the beach in Cayucos before heading back up the coast to Harmony.
