There are several pilgrim Albergues in Olveiros maybe , just maybe, a pilgrim who passes before you has left a puncture repair kit for others to use , as he/she slowly gets rid of gear for the return home . I have found an innertube , energy powder,all sorts of medication , a multi tool and lots of clothing left in Albergues by people who quit the camino and thought of others . Worth asking at every Albergue in town if you are that stuck .
Are you really riding on 16-inch wheels, or is this for a bike trailer? If you're not carrying a repair kit, are unable to fix the flat and/or can't find a bike shop, your best option would surely be to flag down a passing cyclist. No touring cyclist will Leave you stranded, as I hope that by now you will already have discovered. Best of luck!
Thanks for your post Wgroleau.
I'm off on my cycling camino in 4 days time. I can say - I can replace bicycle tyre on my own (being woman), did last summer.
I'm renting bike from company, I hope my rental company puts extra tube in repair kit on the bike.
Feel ready now for my journey!
Good advice, but doesn't help to fix the flat I have now. I've never timed my repairs, but on a regular bike, I didn't need tools. The Brompton, however, has a rather complicated rear end which one must be very careful not to lose tiny parts when disassembling on the road. And then, my hands can remove a tire from a 24-inch wheel, but not from Brompton's 16-inch wheels.
