Day 7 – Tree Branches and Rear Derailers.

Today the wind blew again, and about 5kms into the ride, a tree branch flew across the rode and hit my leg, and also the rear derailer. I spent the next 9kms holding the shifter at half way between gear changes so the chain would stay on 1 cog. Bugger.

No photos today. Wasn’t on the bike long enough.

    Mate, I can’t believe the shit luck your having with this challenge. But then it is the middle of Winter so poor choice of timing by you I say. Hahaha!!!
    Keep plugging & just add any time missed due to mother nature or mechanicals to future rides.
    By the end of it you’ll have a 8hr ride to do. 😛
