So with the sun shining brightly and the weather warmer than expected, I donned my gear and camelback for a new years ride around Green Mountain. Overall, it was mostly dry with very few spots of standing water. The biggest " obstacles" were the many hikers and dogs...but even they were all very polite and fun to be around.

The most snow I rode through was along the northeast side- right through the burn zone (which is STILL greener than the rest). What a day-what a ride I was thinking as I coasted eastward along Alameda..went to cross the street when CRUUUUNCH went my chain. At first I figured that the ghost shifting I encountered along the last part of the trail had caused the chain to come off the cassette...but there was no chain on the front rings!!! I walked my bike across the street and upon further inspection found this...

At least the breaking took place at theend of my ride...but I couldn't ride to work today...bummer. The worst part is that this hanger was only 2 months old and had only seen Green mountain once and street riding to and from work! GRRRRR!:madmax:
