Blown out chain
The ride was going along nicely until I forgot the proper way to shift my bike while climbing a hill, and that's when the trouble started. I guess I torqued it a little too much, because about 5 minutes later, I went to put some power to it after making a hairpin turn and BLAMO!! No good way to get out of where I was with a busted chain and no tool to fix it. So I coasted down the hills and tried to keep enough speed to get up them. I think I ride better without a chain quite honestly.
