My buddy Loh
for whatever reason, my Garmin didn’t charge overnight, so the course is from a buddy.
really? Yes, this island is small, Switzerland seems now like a huge place 😉
So all went well this time, finally… the chain did stay in place. However 128 km on this small saddle, this is no pleasure at all ;-( My butt has to do some getting used before I can enjoy this torture.
The ride went very smooth, as usual, we meet at 6:00 in the morning and left at 6:15. Because today was a public holiday, we could do this on a Wednesday regularly these longer rides are on Saturday and Sunday. Besides a few drops of rain, the weather was nice and comfortable.
hanging on the wall in the office. Yep, the apartment doesn’t have a basement or an attic, but I like it kind off 😉
Ready to hit the road 😉
6:15 in the morning start to another bike ride with the WCR, all looked well and as usual the guys speed of like being chase by some Cheetahs 😉 But no problem I eaten my Banana, so I manage to stay with the group until about km 60 when my damn chain derailed again. Now I ride mountain bikes for years, then this EPS (Electronic Power Shift) from Campagnolo should be very accurate, but it happen again. This time it derailed towards the frame, not only did it damage the frame but it got stuck so bad I hardly could remove it. It took me some time to untangle the mess and get started again, as you may already assume, my hands where black covered with grease and the guys where gone 🙁 After that no further incidents, so I got back on my own. I guess I have to see Colin again…
Me with Colin (Bikehaus) and Jing
Looks like after some adjustment from Colin, the bike is working fine. This was an enjoyable ride, this doesn’t mean that this guys speed like no tomorrow 😉
