First Ride

I psyched myself up for a ride, donned some ridiculous clothing to keep warm and headed out.  Thwipping along comfortably on the road out of Crieff towards Comrie when 'pedunck' or some such noise and all of a sudden my chain is dragging on the road.  Five minutes riding followed by a fifteen minute walk home.

So I got a chain-link fixing tool and this morning with a little effort, a little frustration and a little gentle coaching and encouragement from Annie I fixed the chain, gave it an upended pedal test and now just have to start juicing myself up to get back in the saddle and out on the road.
