||Met up with Liz after she'd finished work and cycled into Exeter for lunch at Mrs Lutzys.
Cycling back, I got a puncture. It was bad enough that the "snake eyes" double puncture highlighted that I'd been under inflating the tyres. What was much worse was that while I'd managed to bring the right sized spare tube for the new bike, I'd neglected to bring one with the right valve type to fit through the wheel. Trying to use a 20 year old puncture repair kit didn't work too well either.
So Liz cycled on home and came back to rescue me from the canal car park by the Swans Nest for the second time in about 4 months.
|Motorway bridge and back
||A slow puncture put paid to the ride into Exeter. Got back without having to change the tyre but it did need pumping up a couple of times.
|Liz ride to work and Exeter
||Liz cycle ride to work and then into Exeter with Aidan for lunch at Mrs Lutzys.
Aidan had a puncture on the way home and had brought the right sized spare tyre but with the wrong sized valve. Doh. Liz cycled home and then rescued Aidan in the car.
|Lutzys, a puncture and the SYC AGM
||Coffees and custard cakes at Lutzys on the Quay. Then a puncture at Topsham Ferry so late to the SYC AGM. Then building a new SYC <a href="http://www.starcrossyc.org.uk/weather-details/wind-at-syc" target="_blank">wind display</a> page with Andy B.
|Floods, a puncture and a disputed cupcake
||Post snow flooding on the Exe cycle path meant a bunch of walking. Liz didn't want the gorgeous Lutzy's cupcake bought for her so it was half each - the first "snack" this year! Then a blowout on the way home on Lizzie's rear tyre. Not helped by the poxy pump we had with us only being able to half inflate the tyre. A trip to the LBS tomorrow for a replacement.
