Many years ago while riding off road in sand I hit a sharp rock and popped the rear tire. Tube was done. I was over 10 miles from town. But I happened to have a 40 foot piece of hemp rope. So I packed the tire with sand and tied the tire on with logger hitches wound thru the spokes. As long as I went less than 15 MPH it was OK.
