14th July. Shreddin Sun Peaks Dude…
Today Hazel treated us to eMountain bike hire & had worked out a route for us.
We hired from Evolution. This time they were proper mountain bikes.
We set off and got about half a mile up a fire track when my bike broke. The derailleur was bent and the chane had come off one of the jocky wheels !
I had a closer look and it appeared the chain had been threaded incorrectly ! I scooted back to the bike shop. The bike mechanic said it was broken & they gave us another bike.
We rode off towards the fire track when my chain broke and fell off ! Second bike broken – now that’s embarrassing 😬
Back to the bike shop they’d run out of hard tail eBikes in my size so I got an upgrade to a full suspension version 😁
We set out again with me being very careful with this one…
On the way down Sarah’s rear brake leaver leaked oil – 3rd bike broken.
We made our way back to the bike shop where it transpires the bikes were new and it was their first ride ! Anyway the bike problems didn’t spoil a lovely day in the mountains 🙂
Back to the flat for some R&R…
