Veterans Day holiday ride

Monday, November 12, 2012

Alan and I met for a ride which was to go from 120/Cherry Lake Rd to O'Shaughnessy Dam and back.

Just so you understand the difference between men and women, I started this morning with:
Head band
Heavy jacket
Long fingered gloves
Leg warmers
Heavy socks
Shoe covers

Alan was wearing:
Cotton head covering
Arm warmers

We got started just after 10 and did the big climb up Cherry Lake Rd. Were zipping down Mather Rd. when Alan’s chain broke. Looked like the master link gave up. Fortunately, he had a chain breaker and a spare pin. Twenty dirty fingers later, the chain was back on and we thought we were ready to go.

Oops, the chain wasn’t fed through the derailler correctly and there wasn’t another spare pin. So, we turned around and headed back. Fortunately from that point, it was mostly downhill.

We got back to the cars and came on home. Total miles: 21. Total fun: over the top!

Future goal: make the whole ride
