Today was going to be a beautiful riding day. Started the day in a brisk 15C. Afternoon calling for about mid-20C. So looking fwd to the ride of the week. Alas, about 1km from my office upon going up a steep bridge, my chain just disintegrated! I was partly on an incline and that sudden loss of pedalling momentum caused me to nearly fall off. Only my ninja-like skillz helped me land gracefully.
Of all things, I didn't have my chain tool with me. So I new I was SOL. So had to wheel the bike in.
Good thing is I was entering the MUP part of my commute. Interestingly lots of cyclists rode pass me and thought I was some human-bike pylon. Only one guy slowed down to ask if I needed help. Oh well. Since I was only 1km away, I was just find wheeling the bike in. The morning was still beautiful. The slower pace allowed me to enjoy the MUP's scenery.
Hmm.... going home will be another matter.
