Was someone trying to give me a message?

On the way home from work yesterday, thoroughly drenched, I managed to get to the top of Hampstead Heath before being hit by an unmendable puncture. Had to get a taxi home.

This morning, nice and dry and on the reserve bike I'm manage to get a full mile from home before my pedal slides off the spindle. Aaargh. I'd lost the restraining bolt without noticing. :oops:

Anyway, now have to drag home on the Tube with new pedals, inner tube and tyre. Hope tomorrow is better.

    You've just reminded me I forgot to lube the chain last night. Must do so tonight.

    Tomorrow will be better :wink:
  • Cool, and I need to start carrying that spare tube I keep in the shed.

    Gosh, and tighten my chain... :idea:

    Another reason to go clipless? :twisted:
