Still, we left fairly early and got into Windsor in the drizzle. Pop, fizz, bubble - Jake had a puncture. The team repaired the puncture in the dry, under a bridge and cycled 50 metres - pop, fizz, bubble - Jake had another puncture. The 1000 miles had worn the tyre thin and there were little tears, time for new tyres. Back to '700' and a coffee, 30 minutes and several pounds lighter we were off again.
Jake is checking the inner tube to go in.
Nic is removing the inner tube that needs repair,
Philip is taking the photo?

By the time we reached Hampton Court - Flower Show going on (lots of very smartly turned out people) we looked great!
|You should see the legs!|
We found a taxi - with all the miles spent to and fro to bike shops we had already completed our predicted distance (58 miles), it was a matter of safety first. We found a taxi big enough for us, 3 bikes and all our incredibly dirty, Thames water smelly kit - hooray! The hotel was across the road from Walthamstow Greyhound Stadium, adjoining a dual carriageway and overlooking Sainsbury's but it was home!
