A Memorial Walk of Shame

I thought the Dillinger was good to go. I was so excited to be on a mountain bike, the last time was last weekend and I hate this weekend warrior crap. I am pretty sure I didn't mix chain links but then there was a little chain pop at the trail head. I should have known but I guess I ignored it in my eagerness to ride single track. After the stream crossing I mashed on the cranks leading into the small climb when my chain exploded. Those new links went flying. My chain fell off.

Glenn and Paula were with me and once again we proved that it wouldn't be CT NEMBA ride without a mechanical. I had extra links in my pack but they weren't single speed links. I was screwed in the P-Valley. Walked back to the car, loaded up, and headed home.
