It's all very confusing…

Follow-up to Dammit from The randomness of tomorrow, today!

It seems to have inflated easily enough, so it doesn't appear to be a puncture. I'm sure it was fine when I left campus, though…

I've got another blasted flat tyre…

Bicycle Puncture II: The Revenge!

When we were doing–up my bike the last time, we found tyres that were more resistant to punctures (toughened, or something) and inner tubes that were supposed to plug–up punctures using the slime they have inside.
On Monday night I got a puncture, and on Tuesday morning I had a flat tyre…
This was made more annoying by the fact I had my first lecture of the term at 9 o'clock the next morning. I think it was probably because it was a metal screw; large and not particularly supple, and apparently too much for the tyre.
So I walked in on Tuesday morning, and got a taxi home Tuesday evening (I'm lazy). This morning I decided to have a look at the tyre in the hour I'd set aside for walking to my lecture; it's a 45 minute walk or a 15 minute cycle. As it turns out, the slime seems to have worked; I managed to inflate the tyre long enough to get to campus. There's still a slow bubbling (because of the slime) through a small hole but I'm hoping that the air pressure and centripetal force will help to plug it up…

Look! Up in the sky! Is it a bird? Is it a plane?

Follow-up to Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries from The randomness of tomorrow, today!

No, it's me (on the ground, I should point out) having to walk to and from campus because my bike's front tyre is punctured, and I can't be bothered to fix it just for a week.
The drawback of this is that I have to leave an hour before lectures, instead of 15 minutes.

Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries

I am not having a good day…

Too little sleep, to little work done, the key for my bike's lock snaps, £5 taxi home (I'm lazy), 45 minute walk back, can't get the blasted spare key in the lock, manage eventually (must be the cold, or a cheap lock) but discover front tyre is completely flat and bike is un–rideable, £5 taxi home (damned if I'm walking home at this time of night in the cold; I'm tired for one, and lazy for another), iminant 45 minute walk onto campus after a long lie in leading yet again to too little work, and I don't even have any alcohol…

Still, you've got to laugh:

My pedal is re–attached!

Follow-up to It goes to show you never can tell from The randomness of tomorrow, today!

Hooray!
The 45–minute walk onto campus is now back to the 10–minute cycle it was before Friday…

Follow-up to Sabotage from The randomness of tomorrow, today!

I never imagined that one time when I was coming on to campus I'd have to remember, among other things, to bring one of the pedals off my bicycle…

Sabotage

Follow-up to I know I'm breaking the law, but there's such a thing as courtesy… from The randomness of tomorrow, today!

On my way onto campus this morning, one of my bike's pedels fell off…
I suspect this may be the work of Rebel Pedestrians…
