Thorn In My Side…

on September 1, 2011 in Outdoor Activities

Second puncture sorted, traveled to work and back yesterday with only the usual problems caused by lack of fitness.

Came to get the bike out this morning and the tyre was flat yet again. Since there’s now 3 punctures in a line there must be something causing it…

The puncture was in the middle of theĀ  tyre side of the inner tube, but when I ran my fingers round there’s nothing there. So in desperation I turned the tyre inside out and there it was…

A thorn in the tread of the tyre, which only pokeds through when pressure was put on it!!!

So third puncture fixed, offending thorn removed and some Slime added to the inner tube to seal any new ones, I’m off down the canal in the opposite direction, not sure where I’ll end up.
