It's Monday; and, it's good it's declared non-working day.
I again went back pedal all the way to San Mateo and continued my mountain crossing training.
While pedaling I noticed there's problem in my gears. At the two highest gears, I felt some frictions from the chain. Likewise, I noticed the brakes needed adjustment too.
Hence, on my way home, I passed by a local bike shop in Fairview and had my biked checked up and tuned up.
It's now running smoothly.
