I'm fairly new to this biking game - only a couple of months but I love it. Already have three bikes (counting wifes) and would buy more if I had room. Being a newbie, I have read a lot, incl advice on carrying a flat repair kit and learning how to use it. BUT that couldn't happen to me could it?
Lots of rain and a busy schedule resulted in only two very short rides this week so today we load up for a longer ride on our favorite bike paths in Peachtree City. Weather was great - even a little cloudy, so nice and cool. Things are going well and I am even noticing my rear end feels more comfortable than usual when I notice something feels funny. My wife looks and yells "your back tire is flat!". No amount of pumping would bring it back to life so had to walk it back to truck and load up for the ride back home.
Oh well, something new to learn and new stuff to buy.
