Wormslayer


I headed out for the weekly Hiawatha ride this morning in a light drizzle. As I rode up Highway 13 I was amazed at the number of worms on the shoulder. Apparently we got more rain last night than I thought. We made a couple of coffee stops and escorted Ray home. I bought a water bottle cage for the Kuwahara and headed home myself. This afternoon I was adjusting a fender on the bike that was rubbing, and found that the bike was littered with worm corpses. It was kinda disgusting.

One on the quick release and one in the sprockets (you can't see it well because it's covered in chain lube)

The front fender:

The rear fender:

The rear quick release:

Rear wheel:


Another one covered in chain lube, this time on the front sprocket:

And finally, the crank:
