"Why I like the on-street public bike pumps" - by Sara Sloman

1. Got a puncture by Redland railway station, so jumped on the train to Clifton Down where I knew there was a free BBB bike pump

2. It was easy to change a puncture there, lots of space and a place to sit and spread out the tools on the wall

3. I knew it was close to a bike shop in Cotham (Psyclewerx) if I couldn’t sort it out myself.

4. Tempted to get a coffee from the Shopping Centre as I knew it would take me while!

5. Huge sharp stone extracted from my tyre and inner tube swapped over quickly.

6. Quick and easy to pump the inner tube up to a medium PSI to test it out using the luxurious BBB pump

7. Rolled slowly onto work with the low PSI, where I used the emergency cycle repair kit to complete the repair and restore the bike to full PSI

8. VERY grubby clothes and hands but keep a change of clothes at work so it was all easy and no one would have known

9. Lost half an hour on my day, but felt great to be able to still cycle to work and not retreat home

10. Thanks to Better By Bike for the pump and the confidence to give it a go!

- Thanks for the positive feedback Sara! - BBB
