The Bad, the Slight Amelioration, and the Relief - not an Old Western.
On my morning cycle ride, I noticed my left pedal was starting to wobble, so I turned around to head home. Within 100 yards or so, it fell off.
Fortunately, I wasn't too far from home and it was mostly slightly downhill, so I could coast most of the way.
Even better, the shaft hadn't sheared off as I feared. The nut had just worked loose, so I was able to fix it.
Still, not the way I planned to start my day.
Medievalists and Medieval-adjacent. Sort-of.
