Tell us about your worst puncture this #mycyclingweekend

It happens to all of us, sometimes at the worst possible moment. Tell us your story and win a £50 Continental tyre

It's happened to all of us. We've all had punctures at the worst possible time; here at we've had them and over at Cycle Surgery they've had them too. 

Do you remember psyching yourself up for a great #mycyclingweekend only to have your day scuppered by a puncture half way up a climb, or experiencing a particularly hairy moment mid-descent?

Maybe you took a photo, maybe you didn't, but if you've got a memory, you can take part in this weekend's #mycyclingweekend competition. 

All you've got to do is try and capture the spirit of that moment, or actual footage of a similar moment this #mycyclingweekend in order to win a Cycle Surgery-provided Continental Grand Prix 4000S II tyre. A tyre which we gave a 9/10 to when we reviewed it and retails at £50.

Remember, to enter you must include both the #mycyclingweekend hashtag AND the #CycleSurgery hashtag in your posts to Instagram and Twitter!

Obviously we hope none of you puncture this weekend.

There are things you can do to avoid it, especially if the road conditions look like they might contribute to the likelihood of you puncturing.

Just ask Lee Walton and his friends:



If you need some more technical advice on how not to puncture, why not check out our very own guide on how to prevent punctures. New inner tubes and puncture resistant tyres are only two of the many pieces of advice hidden away in the article below:

Punctures might seem like a small-time problem, but should they occur at the wrong time, you might end up like the guys below.

Granted their crashes weren't puncture-caused, and the only reason they sent them to us this week was because we spent last #mycyclingweekend discussing your worst crashes and your recoveries, but our point still stands.

Hope you're on the road to recovery Guy and Mathias!

Of course, we've seen plenty of punctures throughout our time here on the #mycyclingweekend, and we expect to see many more.

Remember, to share your story with us and enter the competition this #mycyclingweekend, pop your photo onto the internet on Instagram or Twitter, remembering to include the #mycyclingweekend and #CycleSurgery hashtags in the caption.

You won't win if you don't include both.

Safe riding.
