Even Steven

On Monday I discovered the reason for my multiply punctured tube, a thorn piercing my bald back tyre. I had noticed this baldness a while back but have kept putting it off until now. So en route to school to meet the boys I cycled to town and picked up a new tyre for £18 and changed it outside Coffee Corner in the sunshine.

I soaked up the admiration of passers by, the “Stortford wives” and the yummy mummys with their buggies inside the independently run café as I dealt to that wheel.  While supping my coffee and wolfing down a date and ginger biscuit, I worked out that the tyre alongside the recent brake service has cost me nothing:

8 commutes to work = £36
Brakes service £18
New tyre £18

My obsession over saving money on petrol continues this week but more on that later…
