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…
