My first flat! 1 Month, 1 Week ago  
Luckily it was on my bicycle
My running has sucked lately, I'll be lucky to hit 1300 miles this year. So I decided to take the bicycle out today, trying to get back in running shape. 2 miles into the ride, I hit something and blew out the front tire.
Luckily I was only 2 miles from home, so I grabbed the neck of the handle bars, and ran home alongside the bike. Not the workout I wanted, but I sure couldn't have done that with the Road Star.

On a good note, about a half dozen bike riders stopped to see if I needed help. Even offering a tube and CO2.

Put a new tube in when I got home, and I'll try again this afternoon.

Road obstacles can be a bitch.

Could have been worse.

we ride every day and never without a spare tube each and pump. we don't bother patching tubes. been lucky so far this year but a couple flats a year are the norm for me.

That hurt, but I bet he was just as worried about his bike. My bike is nice, but some of these guys spend more on a good bike than I paid for my Road Star.
