Flat tyres and new friends.. and a schoolboy error.

This is the actual hole in my inner tube.. right by the valve. Not sure what caused it. More like a tear due to the bike shop fitting the inner tube badly!

It was the first day of my new commute .. I was so pleased I’d managed to cycle 4.5 miles down to the station and catch the 0740.

The train home was empty… everything was going fine …

And then I saw my bike in the station cycle racks with a flat tyre.

And I hadn’t even an emergency pump on me.

And started walking all the way home 😦

Until a brilliant bloke who I only know as Nick pulled up on his bike and offered to help.

He was amazingly optimistic and had not only a pump but a repair kit too.

Thanks Nick !
