My poor, neglected Raleigh has sat in the house all winter. I had one of the old, probably original, tires blow out last autumn. Er, sorry, "tyre," the British spelling. I replaced both of the tires at the same time. However, each time I remove the Raleigh's rear wheel I need to readjust the shifter cable, which controls the old 3-speed internal hub. It's pretty easy, but I just never quite found the occasion.
Saturday's beautiful, sunny weather was my excuse. First a short ride around the neighborhood - I had to feed my friend's chickens a few blocks away. And in the evening, to a party about a mile away. Oh Raleigh, what a dream you are to ride!
