    I never carry a pump, and if someone called me an idiot for that I'd call them a twatwaffle and box their ears.

    Well surely as an Experienced cyclist you would have caught the escaping air, bagged it and then just popped it back in.^_^

    For me a minimum on anything over 2 miles is: pump, tube, levers, allen key, plastic gloves and a bunch of cable ties. Ridiculous all those cyclists with no pump. What's the world coming to? :thumbsup:

    Before the last icy spell I read it's best to be prepared for long road journeys, take spades, tarpaulins, blankets etc. The weather didn't delay me, but I felt a bit self-conscious on the bus.

    Six cyclists not carrying a pump, disgraceful. Have they no thought for others.

    Hang on. The sixth cyclist had a pump to help out Uncle Mort so it was only five cyclists. Unless *shock* you mean Uncle Mort was the first of the six?:blush:
