Woke up this morning to find that the back tire on the tootling around town bike was flat.

That's annoying.

No morning tootle for me!

I once took my bike up to Broome for a holiday and Doublegees (caltrops) are rife there. So I went to the local bike shop for advice which was tyre liners plus slime. I remembered my dad had told me a trick they used when he was a kid was to put milk in the tyres. You would get a thornproof tube which smelt totally foul if it ever burst.
