Work is having a Strava art competition with the theme of GIS. Since I am of the main users of the work strava group I thought I better give it a shot, especially as I had the day off. I thought about what I could do on my cycle, planned it on Garmin Connect so I could follow the route on my watch, then set off around lunchtime. I was expecting to just make it back before it got dark.
I was going fairly well and it was easy to follow my watch but then around half way (in Florida) i got a puncture. I swapped inner tubes but my hand pump was doing nothing. I was getting cold at this point but luckily Nixon drove to meet me with a track pump. There must have been glass still in the tyre as the new tube had a hole in. I swapped it out with my only other spare but the same thing happened again so Nixon drove me home. I found one last spare tube and was careful to check the tyre and third time lucky I had a pumped up tyre. I headed out in the dark and was able to carry on the route 3 hours 29 mins after I paused for the puncture.
It got a bit boring at the end, especially all the traffic lights and the fact lots of steep hills were at the end but I was very happy with the finished route. I adjusted my time/distance to account for the sections I had my watch stopped.
