Broke a rack, blew up a cable housing, bent a derailleur, had all the hardware in a crankshaft replaced, ripped holes in shirts, socks, pants; used a lot of duct tape and limped to nearest cities where we were wholly adopted by big bicycle families.
We’ve been traveling for a few days with a french cyclist who is racing to Kazakhstan on his solar powered bicycle for The Sun Trip.
We made it to the Black Sea and swam in its waters alongside fat jellyfish.
We made it to Crimea, also.
3200 KM so far, 41 days cycling. 1 flat and a lot of roadkill.
