We chopped at blackberry growth for Intern Day of Caring. It’s pretty much like bamboo, but thorny, and with a giant starchy root that you must extract to eradicate (hah, hah) the growth. This appealed to my careful and persistent nature. (???)
I’d taken my bike into the shop for a gentle and subsidized tune-up (yes, interns can do it too), and the guy was like, “Oh, I hate blackberry. It’ll all be back in a year.” I got good vibes from the bike guy at Pedal Dynamics. Apparently the tube of my rear tire had bits of metal in it. Funny that the front tube got a leak (and during patching, was confirmed to be pristine save for two tiny holes), but the back tube had some serious shrapnel-business and didn’t have a leak.
