Ditch those cotton tires before you get hurt.

Mooty has been there too. I think if you cycle long enough, we all break something or many things. Part of the risk much like tracking, although tracking is likely safer in the long term.

A lot of people said "oh will you cycle again" after my accident. I think I was in the emergency room still when I asked the doctor how long it would be before I could get back on the bike. He laughed. Pretty sure he'd heard that question before.

Ditto, glad you came out OK! Blowout while riding downhill could have been much worse...you're no worse for wear, nothing a good rodent shake wouldn't cure!

Glad you didn’t get hurt Mooty. I don’t know how these guys can go so fast down these hills around here. Tire goes and it is instant ugly.

Mooty - you crushed Kings....395W for 28 minutes! That is 5 minutes faster than me when I rode it

That is a great route to ride and right by your house!

I didnít check to make sure tube was fully seated.. so POP it blewÖ I only have one tube and no cell signal. So no uber. Walked 10 min downhill on cleats. Samaritan stoped give me his tube.. he left. Well ****. The value is too short. I can barely get air into it. Well I got it to around 40psi (guessing) and headed home, downhill. 15 min later, I almost lose bike again. Fully deflated.. but I have signal now. so uber home hahaha.
I drive/ride/run a lot in the mountain backcountry and always take my garmin inreach. Much more reliable than cellular or radio communication. Allows two way satellite tracking and text communication as long as I can see the sky. May save you from another cleat march or hoping for a passing samaritan.
