How often do you actually get a puncture?

Commuting, Day rides, Audax, Incidents, etc.

I had ten or more in 2008; I can't find the list (D*mn these computers with their near-infinite disk space)
2009: 4 punctures.
2010: 2 punctures.
2011: 1 puncture (so far)

I've no idea what's causing the reduction. Now using Schwalbe Marathons on almost all my bikes; and the new vehicles (Trek Soho, Genesis Day-One Alfine) haven't featured in the list of shame at all.

3 in the 30 something years I've been biking. 1 every 11 or 12 years on average!

I've actually helped more people fix theirs on the side of the road, than I care to remember!
