Lucky for me this flat tire was near a village so I had lots of help!

 

Many hands make light work, fun changing flat tires!

 

Everyone is anxious to take a turn working on the tire, great fun.

 

Amazing these villagers, pitch in, to get the job done

 

Another close call it pays to get off the bike and have a look now and again.
