I went for my usual Saturday morning ride yesterday. It started out OK, but about 10 miles into my ride I had this real sinking feeling. I stopped and saw that I was riding on the rim on my back tire. Yes, I had a flat. So I pushed my bike up the road a couple of blocks to a little coffee shop where I know other riders often hang out. There was one lady there, leaning on her bike and talking on the phone. I asked her if I could use her tire pump and she gladly loaned it to me. I pumped air into the tire and it came out as fast as it went in. So I called my wife and she came and rescued me by taking me to the LBS. I had run ove a good sized peice of glass and it not only punctured my inner tube, it slashed my tire as well. $37 later I was back on the road. It shortened my ride by a considerable amount, but all in all I had a good time. (And soon after I got home it started to rain) Guess I need to get a spare tire and repair kit and pump.
