Thorns, nails, newts and mud.

At last a night ride with the temperature above freezing, courtesy of a wind coming from the south-mid Atlantic, the downside being the ground conditions, softish, wetish and muddyish. An interesting  feature of last night's ride was quite a few small newts scuttling about, we even caught one but my camera phone didn't reproduce anything worth viewing.
For a change it wasn't me having the punctures, Dougie picked up a thorn from somewhere (there wasn't a hedge in sight) and Roger managed to somehow get his front tyre pierced with a nail about an inch and a half long, and then replaced the tube with one that was also holed!!
Just over 24 miles as usual but no frostbite for a change!
