It’s a funny world cycling. Today should have been the third consecutive day I have ridden about 100 miles. Its a tad tiring! I was physically very, very, tired. I did not expect how the day would turn out. A rapid succession of mechanical failures ensued. Cycling shoe started to disintegrate, derailier started jamming, head set and bottom bracket loose and then discovered three full thickness holes in my rear tyre! A major mechanical rebuild ensues! Fortunately we have a mechanic, Rick with us. So what was a potential physical failure day turns into a mechanical failure day! Emotionally fine though!
