A few years back, I rode with a young woman on a regular basis, including RAGBRAI in 1997. She was a very good riddr, However, she had a method to get flat tires fixed. She would sit down on the side of the road and cry until a man stopped to do the work or her!!!! It worked, go figure!!!! I guess I could have changed them for her but it was more fun to watch, LOL!!!!!!
