Three mornings ago I got on my mountain bike for the first time in a couple months.  I was on my way to work, less than 200 yards away from the house when my chain broke.  Of course I had taken the pedals off of my touring bike, and it was locked in the shed.  I’ve made a pledge to take care of my bikes better.

In other news, I ordered an HD video camera for work, and it should be in today (hopefully).  I’ll be playing around with it to get used to it.  I’ll post some videos on my Vimeo account.  It’s certainly a lot better than YouTube.

Here are a couple of pictures of the chain.  I took these right after it popped off of the bike.
