Why Thrown Chain? My commuter bike drops/throws the chain at least 2x a week (hell, it did it twice on Friday). The bike is thrashed up from commuting, and putting the chain back on means my hands get filthy. That’s life for you – sometimes you just gotta get your hands dirty.
I love bullet points, so that’s what I’m gonna do.
- I live in Los Angeles in Burbank. That means I get to bike in 100 degree weather. *SWEAT*
- I’m a transplant from Massachusetts. I really miss New England (and Dunkin Donuts). GO RED SOX
- I LOVE cycling. This blog is about trials and tribulations of working towards a double century (200 miles), training for a triathlon, and life in general. Yay for ultra distance cycling?
- Since starting this blog, I was diagnosed and “cured” of thyroid cancer. I had a complete thyroidectomy and am re adjusting to life without a thyroid. It’s pretty much the same but I tired a bit more easily.
- Hoping to use this blog to post reviews, etc, about the wonderful world of cycling
- Help out anyone that had a thyroidectomy and is also trying to re adjust to a life of sports afterwards.
- I am not a skinny hip Wheelman hammering all over the city – child bearing hips will never let me past a certain size pants (not sharing that), but I can do a century and crush you with my legs.
