Did you have a puncture shortly after taking the ball photo
PS, where was the Black Swan on the L&L?
I ask as a few years ago there was one in one of the Flashes in the Wigan/Leigh area.
The Swan was down the Leeds end all one summer looking a bit mournful without a mate, made some
weird noises 'n all as I recall.
I'm cycling down the Wigan end now, having moved over from Leeds, I was on the towpath coming
back from Rivington just yesterday, very nice with the settled weather this week.
Weird feathers on these Swans..
Funnily enough I got my first puncture for a good while on the towpath last week ( Blackthorn ?),
it wasn't raining so I kept smiling.
What's a Flash by the way, never heard that usage before?
