What’s your best cycling memory? The loaner tandem my captain and I used in 2010.  The chain fell off as we left the starting gate.  It was rusty and in disrepair, we dubbed it Chitty-Chitty-Bike-Bike.  And then I realized we were riding 25 miles, not 25 kilometers.  We made it to the finish line and a good time was had by all.
