It was a balmy 55 degrees out on this late winter day. So with the glorious days coinciding with my weekend there was nothing else to do on Sunday but get some rest, ride and relaxation in. It was really good to get some fresh air in to the lungs and stretch the legs a bit. The beginning didn’t start off to good. One and a half miles from home and all of a sudden I couldn’t pedal. I tried softly a couple of times to pedal to no avail. I then switched to the small front ring and could still not pedal. I then dismounted and dropped my chain off the front and the BB was smooth as buttah. I looked closely at the back but it seems good. I tried to spin the rear hub and it was barely spinning. I bent down and wiggled the rear sprockets and they were super loose. I removed my rear wheel and hand tightened, then luckily I found a pen half buried in the sand of a driveway and used the point to stick in to the sprocket and tightened. This got me through my short ride and I was good to go. Whew. I then openend it up for a couple of miles and cruised by the mills and the Blackstone River.
