Saved By The Gel

VechhioJo gets saved by someone else's selfishness

Thank you to the lazy, inconsiderate, selfish cyclist that threw their empty energy gel wrapper into the verge some time in the past. I found it in the long grass when I was looking for something to patch the large rip in my tyre that my tiny Lezyne tyre-boot was having trouble dealing with.

Thanks to your thoughtless help I was able to limp home.

Jo Burt has spent the majority of his life riding bikes, drawing bikes and writing about bikes. When he's not scribbling pictures for the whole gamut of cycling media he writes words about them for and when he's not doing either of those he's pedaling. Then in whatever spare minutes there are in between he's agonizing over getting his socks, cycling cap and bar-tape to coordinate just so. And is quietly disappointed that yours don't He rides and races road bikes a bit, cyclo-cross bikes a lot and mountainbikes a fair bit too. Would rather be up a mountain.
