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?
@artsyhonker No, never. I lived in Virginia. Winters weren't that extreme. We had all-season tyres.
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.
@stack_satoshis That language you’re speaking. What is its name?
@paco that's just limey propaganda.
