Boy do you get hot when you run with a bike!

Yet another puncture! I don't know what's going on but I've had more
punctures in the last month than I've had in the previous 28 years!

And with 6 minutes to get from Kings Cross Thameslink to Euston I
decided to run with the bike instead of fixing the puncture there and
then.

I _thought_ I got hot and sweaty cycling but it's NOTHING compared to
running!

Still, I just made the train - but when you hear reports of 22 people
drowned on a silverlink train you'll know where the water came from :)


Tim.


p.s. Anyone know if they've given up sweeping the streets in London? Or
perhaps they are gritting them with broken glass?

You'll look back on that post in a few years and will show it to your
grandchildren!

Congrats!

Have you thought about taking up Cyclocross? Just like that but with
loads of cooling mud added...

Sounds like time for some new tyres

These are the new (kevlar) tyres - three punctures in a week - back,
front, back, new tyres and now about 3 weeks later, another puncture in
the back. (The old front tyre wasn't particularly worn at all but as it
didn't have a kevlar strip I replaced it anyway and have put it to one
side as an emergency spare)

Tim.

p.s. I wasn't cycling from KX Thameslink to Euston, just that it was
just before I got to KX on my bike that I got the puncture so my 6
minutes includes the time to get through Euston station and down to the
platform but not the time getting through KX. I was also lucky that I
didn't have to wait to cross any roads.
