My tyres were a bit muddy, so I was quite pleased when I saw a shallow puddle I could ride through just before arriving at work. That, it seems, was my mistake. Wet weather, explained my uber-cyclist colleague, is deadly for tyres; all those little bits of glass floating about just waiting for the chance to slice through the unsuspecting rubber.
Sorry about that, isobel!
You’ve been through an opportunity for your neverending learning process, though!
So: congratulations, dear friend!
Oh poo expensive!
Oh noooooo! “Oh poo”….I’m with Gilly only I’d be adding a ‘p’ to the end and I just may have used some not so nice language. Would depend on the dayI had.
Oh no…I’m sorry to hear about this.
Yikes….and this is a NEW car with NEW tires. What a shame…….
Second hand car, Pam, and I don’t know how old the tyres are. But i bought my bike new, and the tyres were new too! 🙂
Bicycle tyre repair kit at the ready?
well I assumed it was the bike, not the car…. as generally one drives a car and rides a bike!
You were right Pseu, it was the bike. It’s a very long time since I have driven to work, what with the congestion charge and lack of parking unless you earn much more than I do. My car is an expensive luxury that enables me to go east plus cat at a moment’s notice to my equally expensive luxury, das Boot, should I need to be near mother for a while. Apart rom that i use it very little.
So not too expensive, though I did wheel it round to my friendly bike shop to fix, and they straightened the bent spokes, a legacy of when bits of my bike were stolen. I know I ought to learn how to do it, but it would have taken me ages, i had lots to do and it was raining.
Sorry. Is that just too wimpy for words? 🙂
NOT at all. Of course I have my own Bicycle Repair Man in Cycloman
Nice as the man at the bike shop is, he is not, alas, Michael Palin!
Though my thrill of last week was meeting Sarah Waters in my local M&S.
