Sharing my cycling experiences after many years of sharing my running experiences. A view from the back of the pack.

There's a puncture in my shoe!
I like trees. In fact I love trees. That's why I have some beautiful trees in my garden and enjoy being outside under the trees. I specifically love thorn trees and the Acacia family probably includes all my favorite trees. One of these is the "Acacia sieberiana" or "Papierbasdoring" or "Paperbark Thorn". I planted one of these trees in my garden in February 2007.
It has grown quite a bit since then...
It has some beautiful thorns now...
I stepped on a branch like the one above this morning with my Nike running shoes and heard a pop and a hiss...! My shoe got punctured! The Nike Air was deflated! The heel does not have support anymore and collapses when I step on it. Shoe retired!
The red arrow points to the puncture :)
I still love my thorn tree! Have a great weekend everyone!
