Tire help
#1
Hey everyone, new here, and also new to riding bikes. After 29 years, I finally learned to ride and after a month of riding, this morning my tire messed up.

I'm still not sure what happened (and forgive me for not knowing the proper names of specific parts)

Here's a picture of the damage, hopefully someone can explain to me what happened and how it can be fixed? Much appreciation. If this is something I can repair myself that'd be great, but if you all think it's best to just take it to a shop I can do that too, I just don't have much money to spare and the only bike shop near me has very odd hours so it's hard to get there at the right time.

Thanks in advance! Happy riding!
