My hero on the Southern Outlet

My hero on the Southern Outlet

To the gentleman who pulled up and offered me a ride into town, as I was preparing to change my puncture on the Southern Outlet this morning, here's hoping karma comes to you ten fold.

Only going into Hobart, not going outbound. The beauty of going inbound (provided you can ignore the noise of passing cars) is you have the entire breakdown lane to yourself the whole way, except for a short downhill section where you are moving at traffic speed anyway. The alternative is to go via the Channel Hwy/ Sandy Bay Road which is longer, and considerably more risky as you run the gauntlet of a bucket load of intersections and school traffic. I've had several near misses on this stretch and I also know several riders who have been knocked off.
