    Hi all,

    Just wanted to announce that I did it, and through Montgomery County MD too! It was a blast. Went right by a cop and didn't even raise an eyebrow. I did however have one incident. I forgot to fully tighten my chain tensioner and it unscrewed and went into the spokes, er, bounced off the spokes and derailed my chain. I got my chain back on but now it seems slightly looser. I need to open up the clutch lever compartment and make sure it didn't pop off there.

    Anyhow, I made it 5 miles in the early morning and traffic and absolutely loved it. It is super humid though. Definitely wearing lighter clothes next time.

    I ghost pedal anytime I'm riding near intersections or corners. The cop to car ratio is about 1/20 here. No joke.
