A cautionary tale

Posted on
  • A few days ago I was waiting to cross the A5 just north of Towcester .
    it just so happened that the A5 was moderately busy at the time I wanted to cross, eventually seeing a gap appear in the long line of vehicles I went for it!
    On reaching the crown of the road I heard a loud report as my rear tyre rapidly deflated, ( Oh gosh I thought this is rather risky) with the irate sounds of horns ringing in my ears I managed to reach the safe haven of the far grass verge and with shaking fingers effect a repair to the inner tube.

    The moral to this storey is : When crossing busy highways consider every eventuality with the view that Sod's Law is all encompassing.
    It may just save a hot wash!
