Sadly that would last half a minute here before being stolen and / or vandalised. True.We were cycling in the Gloucestershire countryside last week and after some miles, decided to stop for a picnic.
I leant my bike up against this "phone box" while I ate my lunch and only when I went to retrieve my bike did I notice that the "phone" box was now being used to house a defibrillator, like so many others these days.
However, this box had a bonus as I noticed a giant sized puncture repair kit inside.
I was intrigued so popped inside and had a peek in the repair kit.
I was surprised to find a full-sized track pump, a couple of new inner tubes and a small repair kit too.
It would seem some friendly locals were sponsoring the box, and it was actually on the route of National Cycle Route 410.
Thankfully, we'd just safely descended the steep hill, so didn't require either the kit or the defibrillator.

I'm glad to see you're spending your retirement wisely Tony.
Brian, I will certainly be getting a lot of shop time this winter, but I've been known to go riding in cold weather. I sold the bike that is in the following link, but my current dual sport hybrid is very similar in frame type and tire size. Show "Bicycle"I'm glad to see you're spending your retirement wisely Tony.
And on cold, wet days you've got your wonderful woodwork to fall back on.
