I threw on one of my favorite cycling jerseys and went for a ride after work.  It was a warm afternoon with light winds.  About 7 miles from home I had a flat (darn it).  As I was standing on the side of the road pumping up my tire, I noticed a fellow approaching.  He asked if I had everything I needed and offered me a ride.  He had the look of a cyclist (the thin build and shaved legs are a give-away)!  He left and I went on to get 22 miles in (at a 20 mph pace - pretty good).

Anyway, thank you for the offer, whoever you were.  Though it was not needed, it was appreciated.

It's always refreshing to hear of someone helping out someone.
Glad you were able to complete your ride!
