3 mtb-er's/cyclists asking for the use of a pump. To set the scene: Middle of a forest, two decent if lower end mtb's and one super market POS, patches to fix puncture but no pump.
They'd asked two cyclist already, one hadn't a pump* and the other had just cycles past ignoring them for all intense and purpose.
We stopped without thinking and waitied for them to fix their puncture (well I hope it stayed up), they explained there "fourth" carried a pump the rest relied on.
So why cycle past:
Worried about being mugged?
Decided to give them tough love (you walk out, you'd buy the necessary kit)
Just downright ignorant?
*Does anyone actually ride without a pump? (or C02 cartridge)
