14°C, showers, CR54 miles
A chain break can lead to a bruised bum- I learnt today.
Riding the last mile towards home is s steep hill. On this hill, I was thrown to the road after a sharp crunch and landed on my coccyx. Oh, boy that really did hurt, I had no choice but to swear quite a bit. But then, it could have been worse- I could have crashed down on the cross-bar and you all know what that would mean:
the pain is enough to make a shy boy Buddhist reflect and plan a mass murder
The chain was broken. That chain has been a problem since new- the very same on that tightened up a month ago which made the bike almost unridable. I shall replace it with a new one. Anyway, I walked the last mile & half home, at least I could coast along the downhill bits which cut off about ½ mile.
Not a great ride then.
