31 thorns

The drought has not been gentle to the tires on Pascal's bicyle this year. Today we pulled a total 31 thorns from the mantles of both tires, many of which had penetrated the inner tube. This was the first time we had to replace the tube on both wheels at the same time.

All of that because he crossed a small grass section near the Los Paseos sports field. Most of the time the thorns are not a problem, they are soft and bend easily. However, it's so dry now that the thorns are very stiff, and act like pins.

5 thorns ...
