I'm All Excited Because...

... I have a cycling related thingy to tell you.

On my way back from a meeting in Leicester I was peddling up a short, but steep(ish), hill when all of a sudden my chain snaps!

As I am sure you are aware, this sort of thing doesn't happen very often, thank goodness.

OK, thats it. Just thought I'd mention it, or would you rather I rant on and on about stupid antics regarding motorists?

Thought not! ;)

ah but did you get any helmet camera footage? Especially of your cursing and swearing afterwards ;) :smile:

Happened to me last week!!! Following a lycra clad lovely lady so i lost sight of her :biggrin:

And no, there was no chance of me fixing my chain so had to take that bike home and was late for work.

Can i have a cup of tea, strong with milk, no sugar, to cheer me up please.

LOTT, a refreshing change for your postings. Keep up the good work. I hope to hear of an LBS dealing and/ or the tribulations of buying a replacement part of tinternet shortly.
