Bikes ‘n Coffee has a lengthy recap of the January Rando Ramble. Hats off to these guys doing over 7 hours on the bike amid 40 degree January weather. Here’s a taste of the recap:
Weather was beautiful again for January at pretty much 40° all day long. No complaints, but there was a little bit of a headwind here and there. The only aggravation for the day came from the bike. I made adjustments to my rear shifter cable this week and somehow managed to botch it in such a way that I didn’t notice during my check-up ride to BBW on Saturday. First time we hit a hill I started skipping all over the place between gears. It took about 5 miles before I remembered I could just reach down and slide the lever into friction mode. That fixed the middle gears for the most part, but the top and the bottom of the cluster were still screwed up and I’d get a hop, skip and a jump every time I tried to climb out of the saddle. Despite the annoyance the day was far from ruined.
