Journal - Ride 7, Another KOM and Problems

 

Mechanical Problems...

 

Another KOM achievement ! Two in two consecutive days! The JOY!!!

More specifically....it's ANOTHER sprint record KOM, which are my favourite!

This KOM is very dear to me as I've been after breaking the 4 Minute barrier on this road for a long long time! 

If you couldn't tell already, the road mentioned here is from Victoria to Marsalforn.

And yes, that is in fact a Maximum Speed of 67.3km/h and an average speed throughout of 50.4km/h reached...on a puny bicycle on a bad road!

 

Mech Probs

Today was also quite problematic due to me not fixing my gearing settings. Attempting to cycle with your chain going up and down your cassette is NO FUN and WILL lead to UTTER FRUSTRATION IN A VERY SHORT TIMEFRAME.

So that is why today's ride was also relatively short...

But hey, at least I got that KOM!

On to the next day!
