Bend to Prineville 42 Ravn LT1 Riders

Started out not so good. Chain jammed on the first pedal stroke. It actually bent a link. It was skipping and chattering all day. About 10 miles from the finish I got SAG driver John VS to drive me to the bike shop in Prineville. They removed the bad link. Seems fine now.
