Deflated!


How pleasant it is to cycle unhurriedly along quiet country lanes on a warm afternoon … 


… and how annoying and exhausting it is to have to push your bicycle all the way home in scorching heat because you’ve had a puncture.

When I am Rich (or probably before then) I am definitely going to invest in puncture proof tyres!

Oh dear, people used to have puncture kits with them. I had a set in a small bag attached to the saddle but I would never have known how to use it.

I did have a puncture repair outfit with me, Friko, and a husband who knows how to use it ... Unfortunately there was no small hole to patch, the inner tube exploded and is beyond repair!
