During the marvelous descent from Point Lookout, Suzy remarked that the tire was making a clicking sound. Probably a rock, I thought. We stopped to take a look.
It was like one of those movies where the guy has a knife in his chest, and someone says, “Don’t take it out or he’ll bleed to death.”
I pulled it out, and all the air bled out. A nice young man from the State Police stopped by to offer assistance.
Fortunately, we were totally prepared. Not only did we have a new tube, we had a brand new Primo Comet tire. Half an hour later we were back on our way.
It’s a beautiful day, except for a strong head wind. We have to pedal to make headway down hill.
