“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.” ― Albert Einstein
I couldn’t agree more. Life is like riding a bicycle, and since I have the privilege to live with a passionate cyclist, I am learning a lot about it everyday. One thing I learned, or pretend I did learn, is how to change a flat tire. My boyfriend made sure in my first few rides to show me out to change one, so that I could be autonomous when I go on my own. Even though I know theoretically how to do it, and if I had to, I believe I could, I am still quite lazy when we got for rides and I let him do the work. However, I am always by his side when he gets his hands dirty changing my flat tire, and here are the few tricks that I learned along. Because life is life, and no matter how careful you are, even if you have the best Gatorskin tires on your bike, there will be bumps on the road, and you better be ready.
