After returning to the boat yesterday, I am getting setup for all of the things I want to do over the next 10 days while Jinhee is away. First on that list is 1000km on the bike.
The winds were howling overnight and so I began my morning by putting some extra lines on the windward side to keep me off the boat on the leeward side. About the time I finished that it rained for 20 minutes so I hung around the boat waiting for the roads to dry. No point in getting wet when you don’t have to,
I finally got out to ride and was enjoying some scenery, but after 35km my left crank arm fell off. The last time that happened to me was when I was 13 and my cranks were held on with cotter pins. This is a brand new, high end bike. WTF.
In any case I was able to jury rig a repair on the road and then booted it back to the boat. I found a shop that could fix it and am ready to go for tomorrow. Hopefully tomorrow I get 100km in or my 1000km goal is going to be tough with the cool weather and lack of sunlight.
Here are some sights from today.
The caves at Crispiano.
The stone fences are awesome and they are everywhere.
