Is this tyre toast?

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

If it were my tire, I would wrap duct tape around the tire break, through the wheel and back around the tire about 30X. Bet you can still get 200+ miles out of it that way if you don’t mind bumping a bit. If that doesn’t sound like the ticket, you may need to break the piggy bank.

He’s talking about “tires” not “tyres.”
