Did a slow, easy ride this morning with the wifester. In the tunnel underpass on the way back, on flat, smooth pavement, gently spinning when I hear a loud "plink".
Yup - broke a spoke on the rear wheel. Poo.
Headed to the shop tomorrow to have it replaced. If this becomes a habit, I guess I'll have to look at having a sturdier rear wheel built.
With every ride, I get a little stronger. I gain a little stamina. I gain a little pride. And so I await the next ride...
Riding slow is not a sign of weakness. Quitting is.
