Jolly good - double sided tape isn't as secure IMO. Probably a pretty low volume tyre - 22 mm?

My usual cycling shades are safety glasses. Muffs are hanging on the tool wall.

Two occurrences is two too many in my book, although there's not much you could have done in those instances - I'm just more comfortable using PPE because I know the potential for startlement and hearing damage (mine's already not great)
