Yikes!!! Near Catastrophe

I took a little ride today. I was feeling kind of nauseous when I first started out. But, I felt better as I got further into it. Here's the readout on my cycling computer. I was really only going to do 30 miles. But, after a while I said, "What the heck".

While on my ride I had a little bit of a scare. My left pedal (Look CX6) broke. Now, luckily, this happened as I was approaching my driveway at the end of the ride. But, during the ride, the pedal felt odd. I guessed that I needed a new cleat and didn't think much of it. Then, as I'm approaching my driveway, off comes the pedal while it's still attached to my shoe. I've read online of this type of thing happening to others with less fortunate results. They got their pedals replaced (as well as medical payments reimbursed). I'll be looking for something similar.
