Saturday’s journey | Street Bike, Biking Boards


I had foot surgical procedure (extra like pinky toe surgical procedure) six weeks in the past and have not ridden since. I’ve swam twice, and that is all of the train I’ve gotten. So I get motivated to exit Saturday, excessive is 45 levels, Sunday goes to be cooler and fewer sunny. Determine to do a greenway journey.

I get to the place to begin (about quarter-hour from house), and understand the winter sneakers I introduced are too rattling tight. No method I can journey in them with my unhealthy foot.

I am going house, get my common MTB sneakers and shoe covers. Come again, get able to journey, and discover that the zipper on one of many booties is corroded and will not zip up in any respect. Tremendous, I am going to use my toe covers.

Begin using, and understand I haven’t got a rear shifter (105 10 sp). I cease, pull exhausting on the cable a number of occasions and launch, manages to shift a couple of times. The shifter will click on prefer it’s releasing cable pressure, however no shift. Tremendous, I am going to journey a two velocity, the greenway is not very hilly. The entrance shifter begins crapping out, I sometimes have a single velocity.

After fifteen minutes my unhealthy toe is hurting, so I flip again and name it a day.

The shifters may want the ‘ol WD40 flush-out, however the bike is 15 years previous. Cables and housing had been changed not too way back.

I assume I do not remorse the journey, as a result of I came upon an entire lot of information I have to know.

Thanks for listening.
