Thematic Photographic 405 - Wheels and Tires

By now most of you know me well enough to know what my contribution will be about this week!  Cycling is a big part of our activities in the summer and on holidays.  Unlike today's modern car tires that don't often puncture, bike tires are much better than they used to be, but you can still expect at least one puncture on a long ride with a group.  And pumping up the tires is a morning routine on multiple day trips.

In a group, you can count on the instructions of a committee to change that tire

Every morning a bit of air in the tire means your ride will be easier! 

And of course punctures always happen when it is raining.
I love cycling and I am always happy to have my hubby along to change my tire and maintain my bike!

  1. I have a discarded inner tyre on my post. At least I know that neither you nor your cycling companions left it there. I vae always regarded cycling as 'savage amusement'.

  2. Michèle, blowouts are not fun, unless you have helpful companions. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Oh yes, this is just perfect! Great fun too.

  4. It looks like great fun - the riding I mean, not the punctures and the pumping-up!
