i don't know what it is with roads in the UK. I drove 20+ years in the US. Maybe had 1 flat tyre in all that time. Inth 9 years I've lived in the UK, I've had about 10 flat tyres. I'm either picking up nails (random) or hitting kerbs (my fault).

@paco in the US, did you change your tyres every winter for the ice, and again in late spring for the summer?

@paco Weird.

Cycling in London I get punctures, but that's usually a combination of bottle glass and rain. (The rain makes the glass harder to see and more likely to stick to the tyres).

@paco Roads are shite, potholes everywhere, glass all over the place, and the rain just washes everything into the driving line.
