Climbing the hill into town, on my way to the Bike Barn, I broke bracket connecting the derailleur to the frame. Luckily Pamela was in town and picked the bike and I up. I dropped it off with Al at the Bike Barn. He has ordered a new bracket and will add bar ends to the handlebars and a thinner seat (used).
In the mean time, I will ride Pamela’s bike. It is also a Raleigh Detour 4.5 and only slightly smaller. Back on the road tomorrow.
