Flat tyre situation, are you prepared?

Getting a flat tyre can be extremely dangerous while riding. Ideally, you should check your tyres before hitting the road and ensure that it is not balding and has not become vulnerable to punctures. However, an odd nail or a sharp-edged element cannot be avoided all the time and you might fall in a situation where the tyre goes flat while riding.

Here are few quick tips to remember in case you unfortunately get a flat tyre while riding.

  • Do not panic and never apply sudden brakes.
  • Decelerate the throttle, and assess the traffic around you.
  • Slowly bring your vehicle to left hand side of the road.
  • Use front brake smoothly if there’s a puncture in the rear wheel. Likewise, if there’s a front wheel puncture, gently use the rear brakes.
