I was holding the esteemed position of lead tail-gunner as the last 6 of us got to Big Hill Springs Rd. Not seeing anyone anywhere from this great vantage point (ehem...I think I remember something about waiting at the top of hills?) we had a general feeling that the route turned here, so we went west. Were making some good time, due to non-stop attacks from spritely cat5's, when David blew his chain from TOO MUCH POWA!! He got a bit rashed up but was otherwise fine. Shorts got a bit of a job done on them, but I think they'll be out again. (Someone else that has tested the durability of the new kit was...unavailable for comment).
The guys in our group must have been riding their bike tons in the off-season, because half the bikes needed the mechanic's attention when we limped in to Cochrane. If you don't see me on the road for a while, I've dismantled my bike for cleaning and maintenance, and I can't figure out how to put it back together.
Good riding, guys. Solid workout.
And now some picks of poor David. Mark avoided a similar fate when he was able to tame his bucking bronco after he unclipped mid-attack later that afternoon.
