Aborted Ride

by on March 7, 2013

I had to abort a ride this morning.

Backstory: I took the Kona into the shop for a tuneup before the Flèche.  I put new tires, tubes, and chain on the fixie.  I was not confident about the connecting link on the fixie, but ran out of time to figure out another solution on the inexpensive chain.

My fixie chain came apart at the connector.  Pressed for time again, I simply grabbed the chain off the ground, told the others that I didn’t have time for a ride and a repair this morning, and pushed the bike halfway home.  Chris L happened by on his way to work and with a bike rack on the back of his car, took me and the bike home.

I’ll get a new connecting master link today when I pick up my Kona from the shop.  It will be a quick repair and I’ll be ready for Friendly Friday.

This Ride: 5.5 miles
Month: 99.1 miles
2013: 903.3 miles
Total since 1/1/2010: 20,676.2 miles
