Arrgh!! Bloody Puncture

Now that may seem a bit dramatic.  It’s just a puncture on the way to work.  Rolling over strewn grit by some roadworks and phtzzzzz.   No biggie, just an annoyance.

Trouble is I had decided to leave my lightweight Askium tyres on the bike for LEJOG rather than re-shoe with Schwelbe Marathons as I did for the last trip.  This was to save weight in that all important wheel rim area and to prove that the route is passable on a genuine lightweight road set up.  But there’s quite a bit of grit on my route.

Now the demon is ranting in my ear…
