I was running 700c x 28mm Continental Gatorskin tires on the front and back on the Bike X. With the flat forcing a tire change I wanted to try out a different combination.
Stopping by the local bike shop today, I bought a Continental Gatorskin 700c x 25mm tire and decided to install that in the front and move the remaining 700c x 28mm to the back.
I've been reading on bicycle forums that having a larger tire in the back supports the larger weight and narrower in the front provides better cornering responsiveness. So with this flat I just changed my tires to try this new configuration.
I'll finish the install tonight and try out the new tire set up Saturday.

Studying the iPhone map it looked like pedaling around the Baltimore airport would be a good 20 mile ride. Since I haven't ridden in a while and my legs are still sore from running the last few days, 20 miles is a perfect distance.
I selected the 2004 Porsche Bike X road bike for the ride. I started from the house under cloudy skies and a slight breeze on backroads toward the airport. Once connecting to the BWI airport bike path, I was pleasantly surprised on what a great bike path it was. The path was a combination of along the roadside and through open fields and dense forest. The path pavement was in good condition too. Other people were riding it. I could tell this is a popular bike path.
I ended up with the 20 miles but ride before I got home I picked up a piece glass in the back tire and got a flat. At least it was close to home. These tires made it through all of the Death Ride training and the Death Ride itself. I guess this is a sign I need new tires and tubes!
This ride was so awesome I want to do it again this next weekend. But first I need to replace the tires and tubes.

These Porsche Design EC Running shoes are simply awesome. Great training shoes and prefect road running shoes for a mix of dry and wet conditions.
Today was the beginning of hurricane Florence touching Maryland. The wind felt nice with the humidity and it started raining lightly as I finished. Felt good for me but the hurricane is causing a lot of damage to the south.
