First flat in two seasons

Yesterday I had my first flat tire since I started active cycling, and it made me very happy! I had everything I need to repair a flat except experience. And I was very afraid my first flat will happen during an important race and something will go wrong.

But it happened during a short 14 mi ride close to home. I have replaced tires before, but never on a road and never with a CO2 cartridge. So yesterday was the day. Everything went very smoothly and even the CO2 kit worked with the first attempt. I even timed the experience by pausing my Garmin and will update the post when I get it synchronized.

Now I feel ready for anything. And in case if the repair kit don’t work, I have a second level repair kit – my mobile phone with apps like “Uber” and “Call my wife”
