Wednesday started with a very large Bang! Possibly thanks to my very large sleep in on Saturday/Sunday night I have managed to get up to catch the earlier of two buses this week, and today was no exception.

On the plus side, my morning commute wasn’t inconvenienced by the shockingly wet rain that followed, but I could have done without the properly large Bang! that accompanied my cycle commute as all the air dramaticly escaped my rear tyre. I’ve never had a tyre blow-out and it is quite a scary experience. I had to dismount and wheel my bicycle around the corner onto The High and get a bus up the hill from the end.

Taking advantage of the folding nature of my bike I was able to take my bike back on the longer, direct bus home and be rescued home across Biceste by Emma in the car.
