Got an extra ride in this week, woo hoo. With the weather being so freaken hot though I really don't mind missing rides but that doesn't mean I am going to skip one! I went for something a little different this time. I did a lap of RMR and then went back up and down Gidro. Rode the bits to river view, where the ride went sour when I snapped the chain on a steep pitch, the feeling of going from 100% force to 0 is terrible, usually resulting ina slipped pedal or a knee hit to the stem of fork. This time it was the fork and when it hit I thought I was going to be carted out of there. Man did it hurt, I took it right above the knee and I was on the ground for a good 10 minutes resting before I got up and fixed my chain and figured my way out. After knowing I hit muscle I knew I was going to be ok, I thought abotu hitting the pavement and definitely would have if I needed to. I pedaled on walking a few steep pitches and then it was a straigh forward ride out. On the last climb, I got naucious again and had to sit down for a few minutes, by now my knee was huge, and finished my ride to the car.
