With all the riders on here, there's got to be someone with some cool tricks they have used to get home on the bike.
Seriously, I've done all that except for the shoelace in the chain, which I don't think would work. But I HAVE used the chain tool I always carry to remove a link and ride home on the small ring.
And that grass-in-the-tire trick will work, but really, really badly and only for about 200 yards at a time.
