Today I was in the middle of a 50 miler and had a blowout. No big deal because I carry an extra tube. So I pull out the tube and find that it's a short stem which will not fit my Campy Zondas. Oh @#$% ! I had passed the local NBC affliate for Central Texas about a half mile back so I start walking the bike hoping they will let me borrow their phone. When I arrived at KCEN I was treated like I was the owner of their station. What a GREAT bunch of folks. My calls went unanswered because everyone I knew was at work. I was stranded eighteen miles from home. When I told the station's secretary she started asking employees if they were going in my direction. Lo and behold the local weatherman loaded up my bike and took me to my door. Amazing!!! Thanks KCEN 6!!!
