The journey home starts pretty well
Then Disaster! Esther's too strong for the bike,
tearing off her rear derailleur with 7km of hilly roads still to go
An Ingenious Solution! Fortunately, I was there to be the hero!
Although I must admit only pushed on the flat. She rolled downhill and still had to walk uphill!
We did get some funny looks from other cyclists and drivers,
which made Esther feel a little silly as she was being pushed along.
Although it wasn't how we expected to start our Sunday morning,
we got back and it felt good to have overcome adversity and we had a good giggle in the process.
...and the fruit and veg' made it safely home as well!
