Ah, Christmas time is finally upon us, the season of no work and an excuse to gorge yourself on treats! I suspect that my bicycle thighs of muscle (yes they have grown, and no I don't like it!) will turn into bicycle thighs of wobble. Besides that, I'm going to be getting down and technical by fixing the puncture I got on Tuesday caused by all the glass which seems to be decorating the roads at the moment. I was confident that I had perfected my bike-dodge-glass-manoeuvre but perhaps I need a little more work polishing my technique. I have been recommended to buy Schwalbe marathon flat proof tyres which I'm going to purchase in the new year, they promise to 'make punctures a memory' - now we're talking! As someone who knows NOTHING about bike maintenance, please feel free to let me know any tips/links etc for changing tyres! I am somewhat clueless about the world of bike maintenance...As clueless as Boris is about #howtomakeacyclingcity
