Punctures were starting to take the enjoyment out of my cycling until I found out how to stop getting punctures. I had a job on an industrial estate and had to cycle past a windscreen repair place that always had a skip full of glass outside; I hated cycling past that skip and hearing the hisssssss of a new puncture. The roads and cycle paths between my house and work seemed littered with thousands of puncture hazards. At worst I was getting five punctures a week - I was getting a puncture nearly 50% of the time I rode my bike! I'd had enough. Then a friend gave me the answer.
