Bike Wash and Maintenance
Monday, May 24, at 7:15 it is sunny and warm with a low of 67. The high gets to 84 today and the humidity starts out at 50%. We do have a bit of a breeze today so we turn off the A/C this morning. After breakfast I work on wedding journal pages.
We get cleaned up and load the bikes on the truck to take them to Bristol Diamond Car Wash. We wave at Don and Reva across the road as we leave. We pay $1.75 times three rounds to get the two bikes and the truck washed and rinsed. Don and Reva pass us going into town as we head back to the RV Park.
Bob oils, greases, tightens and airs the bikes. He adjusts my seat that keeps sliding down, fixes his mirror, tightens his handle bars, and puts a new cap on his pedal. He puts the new valve stem caps we got at Shipshewana Flea Market on the truck and walks over and puts some on Don's golf cart too.
Bob puts new caps on Big Bertha's valve stems.
I clean the grime off the handlebars and get out leftovers for lunch. After we eat we put the bikes in the garage. I work on wedding journal pages and pictures. I can't get the videos of Nathaniel and Kara singing to load.

Bob shuts the windows and turns on the A/C after he goes out and moves the wires around to get the thermostat to display. Our new circuit board is shorting out somehow when we jostle down the road. What a bummer. And it's supposed to be hot all week.
I call Glenda. She says our neighbor Joyce is flying in from England tonight. I'm so glad to hear she's doing well enough to travel. It's 5:33 p.m. EDT and 84 degrees with 43% humidity.
