    Was doing my 100k spin this morning preparing for the WW200, had three (!!!) punctures in a row with a prospect of walking on my cleats all the way from Roundwood to Dundrum.

    However it wasn't going to be as the two good chaps from Bray Wheelers have not only offered me a spare, but also found a tear in the tyre, patched it, put the tube in, inflated and gave me back my bike - all ready to go! It was like a cyclist AA, no less.

    Guys, if either of you is reading this - many thanks again! I made it home no problem and almost in time ;)
