So I was up at 0455hrs to pedal in on my Ridgback all the way along NCR5 to work. I set off about 0510hrs and half a mile along the road I had a puncture in my front wheel, which was the one I repaired last night from Tuesday's ride home. I swapped the tube and carried on about another mile when the front went flat again! No more spare tubes and clearly there is an issue with either the tyre (which I always check) or the wheel, maybe a loose spoke head protuding through the rim tape (which I didn't check). Counting Tuesday that's 3 flats in about a mile and a half pedalling, a problem wouldn't you say?
I walked home and got my Giant out of the garage and pedalled in on that, it felt like a pretty fast ride and I was proven right by these stats:

Just a quckie to finish off today's Blog, yesterday afternoon at work and at home all yesterday evening I was suffering from quite nasty cramps in my Hamstrings and feet, not while I was pedalling home funnily enough though. What the hell would be causing that? I stay hydrated all the time. But I seem to be fine today, another mystery from an old broken body I suppose.
