I was debating if I should bring my pump along, but since the ride is only 1.5 hrs long, I left it in the car. And guess what? My rear(tube) punctured!!! The kind that leaks slowly. So if I had my pump I could have made it last a bit longer.

I also need a groin guard....

Hmm, yeah that would have helped to have the pump. What did you do? walk back to the car?

Well, I went on a bit with the softening tire, till the point where I can feel the rim. Yeah I walked back. I took another route that cuts to the main road quicker, but from the main road to my car was about 2 miles, so I had to walk the extra distance.

I don't know if it will be better to push my bike over the really hard hill ahead or take a longer route on the road. I was alone, so I figured it will be safer to be somewhere with people around.

Yeah, I dislike riding alone. I find it more fun with friends or family to talk with. Makes biking more fun (IMO). My friend had a flat about halfway down a DH trail and he rode the rest (this was a farely easy DH trail) with a flat tire. But his rim was fine, except for a couple of scratches. Nothing major. The LBS didn't notice.

P.S. FLAT TIRES SUCK...I should invest in a pump.

http://www.notubes.com/ and never worry about having a pump or flat! Not to mention improved traction.
