10.35m: Recovery ride

by Arlyn on January 30, 2008

Was supposed to be a 20m ride around Miramar Lake but my chain broke as I was coming out of the saddle on one of the turns and I ended up going over the handlebars. Took 20 minutes or so to get my chain repaired then I was out of time and enthusiasm so I came home.

Yes, there’s a ding on my frame, but no, it’s just the paint. Bent my saddle a little – took me awhile to figure that out (bike went upside down).

Road rash rocks… (scrub scrub!)

Important thing is that the bike is ok. Bones heal, blood clogs, but carbon fiber doesn’t like crashes.

Yeah, and the mom’s group ahead of me on the road didn’t see me either. :)

Dave, It’s not a good thing when one’s “blood clgos.” Arlyn, how many times do I have to tell you that you are not Superman and you cannot fly? I hope you are okay. You didn’t damage your Team Climb On jersey I hope :)

You’ll be happy to know the jersey is fine. Rash is small, but sticky – didn’t we just have that conversation about benefits of shaving?

Costco has a good deal on razors. Either that or wax on, wax off!

Sounds like a fine topic for a blog post.
