Yep – didn’t get chance to do a writeup on the sunday ride – frankly the lure of a warm pub and a few beers got in the way. Then as I arrived home, I ate a bowl of pasta and fell fast asleep in front of the telly. I’m useless, I really am. It’s not as if it was a particularly hard / long / tough ride either. I cut the distance short as I managed to pick up YET ANOTHER puncture and rip on the bloody useless Schwalbe Duranos. The back tyre is pretty much shredded in under 300km of riding. 3 large holes right the way through the casing plus god knows how many other little tears and cuts that show through to the “breaker band” of blue rubber. Its off now, and been swapped out for a Durano Plus… Strangely the front tyre is completely unscathed – maybe I just got a dodgy one.
Anyhoo, strava for the ride is here
