On my way down, I stopped for two cyclists mending a trashed tire. Byron had a blow out on the descent and rode on his rims for a distance. He and Toby shaved the rims and attempted a repair on Byron's tire with a 12 inch slit. I offered tire boots to help patch the tire. Putting air in the tire and wrapping the tire with lengths of tube, the tube still found spots to bulge out. The hope of riding down vanished. It was time to call triple "AAA". Bill drove the Ford Edge and provided Byron a ride to his car. It was quite an adventure.
