Was going to go for a ride but my chain was running rough. I’m not sure what I’m doing with cleaning and greasing. My speed sensor is also wacky and defective. One thing about running, it’s relatively cheap and maintenance free. Wahoo customer service was excellent and they should send me a new sensor. Glad they talked me out of a Garmin. They wouldn’t be so accommodating.

No Thursday night ride as the guys were doing a solstice ride. I was going to go solo but I decided to go tomorrow but it’s going to be rainy and we are heading out early for the weekend.

Happy 4th Anniversary to Megan.
