After work last week I was able to go on a bike ride. It was a lot of fun and the scenery was awesome! I did have a few snags along the way though. First off, as I went for my first hill the chain came off as I shifted gears. I put it back on but it came off two more times. The derailleur needed adjusted but I couldn't fix it at that point. So I carried on, being more careful on how I shifted. All was pretty good until I turned around to head back. Flat front tire, I pumped it up hoping that I could make it back before it went flat again. Nope, ended up changing the tube, slime was everywhere. It was a pretty big hole.After I replaced the tube I got on my way and was almost back at the trail head when my right contact fell out of my eye onto the ground.I had extra contacts but decided to keep going because it wasn’t that far and my hands had slime all over them from the tube.I did make it back ok, (no broken collar bone) even though I had no depth perception.Oh and one other thing that I forgot.The previous owner of the bike had greased up the seat post.So, most of the ride it was dropping and twisting as I road.Even with the issues I still had a good time and hope that I can get back up there again and make it all the way to the lower lake.It was a good reminder to me to be sure that I carry an extra tube and tools.You never know.
