My generation could all fix a puncture in a bike tyre by the time we were 10
Yes. But that's because many of us had to or we'd be walking.

I carried a puncture repair kit on my bike and had to use it a few times on my cycling journey of 6 miles to school. Even if mobile phones were around back then it wouldn't have helped me. There was no-one to come and pick me up.

I did walk a few times pushing the bike in the rain when I didn't have a vulcanising kit available.
