The WSD STI Lever Ride

Once again, rain clouds were looming before the start of this mornings ride - something tells me we're in for a wet summer. Already I'm just about over stuffing my shoes with newspaper and soaking my jersey's in nappysan!!

Anyway, once we actually got riding it wasn't long until we were stopped again. Chrissy Anderson blew a spoke at the Hanson Rd lights. Luckily, Thunder had a spoke wrench on hand and made an attempt to correct the problem. Unfortunately for Chrissy (because he doesn't ride a TREK!) his blown spoke pushed his tyre into the frame - it was "phone a friend" time for Chrissy. Second lap onto Hanson rd saw SpyCat pull a flat. Another stop. Another Thunder mechanical intervention.

All in all though, it was a pretty smooth ride. And of course, we were rained on before the ride finished.
