- Tech Fact of the Day: Our bicycles have 24 gears, which is a great help in climbing the Rif Mountains. However, while our bikes have 24 gears, we can only use 18 without "cross chaining." Cross chaining happens when the chain is forced to go from a large gear in the front chainrings to a small gear in the rear cassette (or vice versa). Cross chaining produces stress on the chain that it is not designed to handle. Too much cross chaining could actually break the chain.
Next Stop: We are staying in Chefchaouen.
