The missing link
What a crappy way to start the week....
On my ride to work this morning, I stood up to sprint across Raymond Ave to catch a co-worker and the next thing I knew I was laying in the middle of the road trying to figure out what happened. I remembered my foot hitting the ground, so I thought I broke a pedal. Maybe a cleat. Possibly the crank, but that didn't seem likely.
As I picked myself up and got out of the way of traffic, I noticed my chain had snapped. What kills me is that I knew I needed a new chain and I almost ordered one last Thursday so I would've had it Friday. But I put it off.
As I walked my bike the rest of the way to work, a cyclist slowed down to say, "that sucks."
