On Saturday I stupidly ventured out of the city limits without my cellphone or the proper tools for a flat. I went to check out the new Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park. Sure enough, a kilometer into the park, I got a rear wheel flat on my BionX (electric-assist) conversion of a Trek Navigator. Fixing a rear wheel flat on a BionX conversion requires a bit of planning ahead - more than the basic tools are needed, which stupidly, is all I had.
But Kevin ____ and his charming family came to my rescue and drove me back into Calgary (even though it was out of their way) after their enjoyable ride of the new park. So a big public thank you to Kevin and his cycling family for bailing me out of a jam!!
And also a thank you to anyone who has ever come to the aid of a cyclist in distress! What would we do without these good samaritans? If I could buy you all a beer I would.
