I was riding along the I&M trail about 3 weeks ago. I have 2 inch tires and didnt think my tires would puncture. Well, my rear tire went flat, I had tools and a pump but no spare, I was about 3 miles from Lemont. A guy named Mark stopped to help me. He had a patch kit, we didnt even have to take the tire off, he patched it, the patch held and I was able to make it back to my car (10 miles away). It was hot and took almost 40 minutes to fix. Just wanted to say thanx and I will definitely pay it forward.
The Marks of the world and everyone who pays it forward later make life better for everyone.
