'Twas 'Bike to Work Day' so I did, despite still not having my lowest gears. This was not an issue going (downhill) to work, but will be in about ten minutes when I go home. Part of the entertainment provided in the city square was a rather groovy latin four piece who played various Cuban classics UCanDancers are probably familiar with. I don't know what salsa has to do with cycling, but they were really good. I also scored a banana, a coffee (trendily organic), a piece of cake and a protein shake. I also met Andy Reisinger, ex-physics bod.
The lowest gears were not necessary in Christchurch, so I never realized how annoyingly broken they were.
