Brothers Aaron and John from Sacramento, CA went for a ride but had some problems with a flat tire. The solution came in the form of garbage. We featured another solution to the same problem that did not involve garbage, but rather a U.S. President. Also, it's always good when a ride ends with Tacos.

My brother and I started out on a casual ride to explore the urban jungle of our old childhood stomping grounds. Fate as it would seem, tried to sway us from pursuing our day of adventure in the form of two flat tires within less than a mile from each other. My brother being the unlucky one.
The first was a simple skab fix, but the second was quite the doozy. Running over something and creating a small hole, a hole large enough for the tube to "birth out" if the appropriate amount of psi was to be used.
So thinking what we could do.....ALAS! A "patch" to go in between the tube and tire to prevent the tube from entering the outside world. But where would we find such an item? With no wizards or genies in sight, we put our minds together and realized our jersey pockets were full of them! Wrappers from our bars were exactly what we needed. With a few trims here and there, we were back on the road in no time.
The wrapper of choice was Nature Valley's Honey Breakfast Biscuits, quite tasty by the way. Paired up with a nice tea and you'd be set. Not sure how long our hack would've lasted, but it got us to closest Performance Bike where we got properly fixed up.
Tacos, courtesy of Chandos Taco, were a post ride treat.
