Its been a while...

...since I had any mechanical failures so it was bound to happen sooner rather than later. Well last night Paul, Chris and myself set of on our normal route with me as has been the case recently rather slower due to a combination of poor fitness since I stopped cycling to work and the tyres on my bike which drag an awful amount. Things were fairly without incident until I reached the bog and after trying to get through and failing I went to change up from the granny gear at which point the gear cable failed leaving me stuck in the granny gear. This meant that the chain was under extra stress and about 2 miles later it snapped leading to a walk home and no pub visit for me! Hopefully this is the only damage although with all the mud I need to give the bike a good wash down and inspection to see if anything else has been damaged! Hopefully Ill be back out on Tuesday and hope to see some of the others out as I think it has just been the 4 of us since Xmas!

Hi all
I finally have a bike, new lights and no injuries so I'm good to go again!
What time / days are you out now?
