Ken's Chain

Yesterday as it was getting dark and we were finally able to spot a hotel on the horizon, Ken stopped and looked at me with big worried eyes.  He informed me that we might have to find a bike shop because something was really wrong with his gears.  We started pedaling again and I noticed small pieces of something flying out from under his trike.  So Ken got some pliers out and laid down on the ground and a few moments later came out with this:

A pannier strap had gotten caught in his chain.  No bike shop needed.  Whew!

  1. Note to self for future rides; Secure panieer straps! Although I can't be out there with you, at least I will learn a lot from your experiences. Glad it was just a minor setback.
