Piddling down with rain this morning, so I thought I would try the new Zwift course (Innsbruck), it is wholly disappointing, after 30 miles I had enough and stopped…..

During and after lunch the dampness stopped, so I ventured out for a more satisfying real ride!

Even though it was a stiff headwind back AND it started raining again, it was a jolly nice ride 🙂

I also appear to be a few miles ahead of my annual millage schedule 🙂

Out for a morning ride before the rain!

Did a lap (ish) of the chain gang route, stopped at Jim’s to ride with him at 9:30, stopping for a coffee before we set off, stopped at Paul’s for a coffee on the way back home 🙂

Now removed the tubeless tyres from the Hope wheels, found that Schwalbe Durano folding tyres fit…

Tubeless worked ok, but when it went wrong it went proper wrong…

After a late night and an early morning, I just about managed to get out for a lunchtime ride!

It was a struggle!

On the return leg the ‘never get a puncture use tubeless’, tubeless tyre punctured…and as per my previous experience it didn’t magically seal itself!

After various attempts to get some air back in it, and manipulate the tyre to get the sealant to bung the hole, it just about held and I got back to work…

That is it for me and tubeless! when it works its great, when it doesn’t its a nightmare!
