Just as I rolled up to the garden gate after this morning's ride, I hear the unmistakable sound of air escaping from my rear tyre. 'Phew' I thought 'that was lucky'.... but is it? Was it pre-ordained that I'd puncture sometime on my ride this morning? Yes, it could have happened out on the road... but it didn't... and it would have been completely unrelated had it have done. I still think it was lucky though!
