This one took a while to get the bike home as it was flat enough that I had to lift the back wheel and carry it for a bit, stopping on a regular basis to rest. It was late enough that I couldn’t call a friend to see about getting the flat fixed. I called him this morning and it was late afternoon before he showed up to pick up the bicycle to get the flat fixed. He left a temporary spare bicycle. The spare is a smaller bicycle designed more for younger people than me. I am not sure how long it will take for him to get the flat fixed. I do have the spare bike to ride until it gets fixed.
I appreciate my friend helping me out as it’s something that’s not easy for me to get taken care of by myself.
