Here is a tip for any cyclist who has had to deal with a bad puncture on the road which has cut the tyre casing. I have found carrying some heavy duty ‘sticking plaster’ with me an excellent temporary fix which will get you out of trouble and back home, it is preferable to have the heavy duty fabric plasters but in a pinch regular household ones will do. There are plenty of alternatives such as folded $5 note or a large patch but what I like about this solution is that it is easy to apply, stays in place and can be used on your own body should the need arise. I find storing it with my spare tube a excellent place to keep it so it is always with me when I go riding.
Live your passion
