Crippled Crank;-(

Me and KC met at 5:55 for some early fall-ish conditions.  Temp was 64 when I woke so I threw the long sleeve jersey on.  Felt a bit hot on the trail.

Lots of pollen in the headlamp beam today.  Carl took cobweb duty but I wish that he'd stood while he rode so he could've gotten all the tall guy webs too;-)

Rolling along mellow conversational, and when I get to the waterfall rock dip on Ridge my pedal feels cleat is slipping.  On closer inspection I see that the pedal threads have stripped on the drive side and the pedal is crooked.  Doh!  No wonder my cranks were making so much racket!

So here's the Strava Android vs Garmin Fit Android pepsi challenge for a one footed ride down the park road to a Lawyer's Hill climb with a wiggly right pedal that couldn't bear weight.
