A day on the trail

Spent the day out on Heritage trail and gravel roads. Ran into this couple they were riding a tandem to New Orleans, that is a long ways away from Iowa like over 1000 miles. They had a flat, their spare tube was not holding air, neither was the patch, they were stranded on a gravel road between Graf Iowa and Epworth Iowa two small towns without a bike shop. My cell doesn't work there, I suspect theirs didn't either. He thought he was hosed. Well hark, I was their guarding angel in surprise I'm sure they were not expecting help way out in the middle of no wheres. I had a spare tube and handed it over, and they were able to get a go'n. Glad to help fellow bikers. It will come back around.
