I rode 30 miles down and back to a little rural town. I forgot how much I actually use my littler chainring. I needed to bring in the bike to get a new chain put on but still wanted to ride. With the stretched chain it was making the shift from 34 to 50 on the front kind of iffy and it would fall off like half the time. So I just rode in 1x in the big ring and crosschained at will.
I only went up some short punchy hills and my speed wasn't bad checking strava but man am I fucking SORE today. Walking like Fred Sanford motherfucker.
