Puotila metro station, 8:08
I cycled to the metro this morning on my new bike, or at least I felt as though I did. Yesterday I got home with my new 1.99€ pump from Tokmanni and spent two minutes pumping up the back tyre and everything felt new again.
I had felt as though I had lost any sense of fitness as I cycled over the last week. Now I know why: flat tyres let all the energy leak out of you.
To celebrate my speedy and relaxed arrival I photograph the community bicycle pump outside the station. I tried with that the evening before I decided to buy a pump but I think it needs servicing.
