Today I was riding to work, and when I arrived I went to get my bottle of water (not to be confused with water bottle), and it wasn't there. The water bottle had been sticking out of the back pocket of my bag. It even had one of my bungie chords around it, and it never made it to work with me.
A few weeks ago at the end of my long weekend ride, I looked back and my rack bag was barely holding on because one of my bungie chords had fallen off without me knowing about it. I guess I hadn't securely fastened the chord to my rack, and it fell off. Honestly I wasn't that attached to the missing chord or the bottle of water, but I'm sure this happens to almost all cyclist.
What kind of goodies have you left scattered across your cycling route (even if it was an intentional misplacement)?
