Topic - Bl***Dy Punctures

New POD - on 01 Mar 2013
In my quest to get from 105 kgs to 80 (which got down to 90, and crept to 95 in the last few months due to 'winter') I have been combining indoor climbing and cycling to work.
Now I was cycling 2 miles, 3 days a week and coming home the long way, which was on a decent off road trail.
I have changed contracts and compaines, moved digs, moved to a new town, and I am 8 miles from work.
I thought I'd have a bit of a practise run, last night, in the half light down the Macclesfied Canal (Heading from Congleston to Kidsgrove)
Got 4 miles, hit the hedge trimmings. Hawthorn.
Because of lack of spares, I had to walk back in the dark.

Must be more prepared !!

Note: Tyres are cheap, bike was cheap, don't want to be late for work, but It would n't matter that much as I'm a freelance contractor not a permy, but not that 'professional' if it happens too often.
