STORIES FROM THE ROAD


September 17, 2000

NEAR BLOWOUT

I guess ADONAI's angels were looking out after me because if I hadn't stopped to repair a slow leak in my front tube I might have had an accident. When I got the tire off the wheel, I noticed that there were two tread holes. One was big enough for the tube to show. If I hadn't stopped, I could have had a serious blowout and maybe a crash.

I glued on some patches to cover the holes. The larger of the two looked like it could possibly get worse if I rode on it so I put enough air into the tire so that I could walk it. I figuered that I must have been at least twenty miles away from Baltimore. I walked maybe two hours along the road. I was hoping to find a church along the way so that I could attend the service but there wasn't one.

It was around 1 p.m. when I made it to the outskirts of Townson, Maryland. I stopped at a quickmart to check out the phonebook to see if there was a bike shop in the area. I was really surprised when I found the address for a bike shop and it was just two blocks away from where I was. I didn't think that it was going to be open but I went over there anyway.

I was really surprised when I found the shop open. I was also fortunate when I found a tire there that would fit the bike.
