As i started the steep climb out of the woods i suddenly went from a nice low climbing gear to the highest hardest gear instantly! I got off pretty sharpish and examined the rear mech. the gear cable was flapping loose, the nut must have come off!. I spent the next few minutes looking for it as i didn't fancy the ride home in the hardest gear. It was then Dan checked the mech and saw that the nut was still there, so used to shimano gears I'd looked where one of their fasteners usually is, saw nothing and assumed it had gone. Dan though knew where to look and all i needed to do was rethread the cable and tighten the nut, how embarrassing!
there was a treat for us though to fortify us for the return journey and that was Tea and biscuits and Dan's folks.
