Heidi's tire has been fixed - we've biked some 30 miles with the patched tire & tube and all is well.

It does surprise me how much stuff I accumulate for biking. Back home, in Holland, a bike is just a mode of transport - you have a city bike, some basic tire repair stuff, and maybe clips to prevent pant legs from getting dirty when riding the bike to work. Here, my cycle is for recreation - so I have a sporty bike, a helmet, padded bike pants, special shoes, bike gloves, etc. I'm not complaining, as my new bike is ever so much nicer than my old city bike, and riding the new bike is a lot of fun; it's just the sheer amount of related gear that astounds me.
