Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers?

Or simply, tire recycling! MaBell and Kelly made a run for CRM a couple of weeks ago. Per the guiding hand of Dr. Rot we took a truckload of crappy bike tires to this rubber recyclery. Apparently, they make rubber mats. Ironically, we drove! Double whammy--the driver's side front tire had a slow leak due to a screw, discovered as we hurtled along the 110 and a fellow driver frantically pantomimed that something was up. Luckily, we made it there and back in one piece.

This load of tires cost us $10 bucks plus gas, we saw a sweet black and white cat slipping in between the bundles and were good-naturedly told we were not allowed to take photos. I snuck the last one of MaBell as we were ready to drive away.


  1. I recently came accross your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I dont know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.



  2. So much rubber, no where to take it? That's what I've heard after the AIDS/LifeCycle and from some shops. If I was more motivated I would go from shop to shop and event to event picking up worn tires/tubes. Thanks for the post.
