We were out for a ride today, rolling along in a group when we came to a red light. As it went green, I got out of the saddle to get up to speed, and next thing I hear is crraacckk. I looked down, and noticed a huge crack in my carbon handlebars. I guess the torque on the handlebars made them snap, as they snapped from the bottom. Good thing I wasn't moving faster, as it could have ended up ugly.
We were only 8km into the ride, so I left the group, and turned around to ride home. I obviously couldn't grasp the right handlebar, so I had to put my right hand on the stem, to ride home.

Simon gave me a ride to Sabino Cycles once he got back from the ride, and my bike is now back up and running. I'll get to test out the new handlebar set-up tomorrow, as we have a 2hr 30 min ride scheduled.

4000m in the pool this morning, some more aerobic stuff, with a little bit of activation at the end of the workout.
