This is a reminder to MATAIN YOUR BICYCLE. Long story short, I headed out to Chiyoho Inari Shrine to see the sights and eat some sugared fruit. Keep in mind I biked there from Ogaki, which is about an hour bike ride. CRAZY! I know.
Anyways, I went to leave and noticed that my back tire was completely flat. I then had to walk an extra 30 minutes to a small bike shop, pay 4,100 Yen, and then bike all the way back to Ogaki. It was a mess but I learned my lesson about constant bike maintenance, and to always do checks before I go on long trips.
Much thanks to the kind old couple that repaired my bike on a holiday, too!
See y’all in class!
