Photography improves cycling experience...so does gardening.
Who would have known that the telephoto lens cover would work so great as a padded protective cover for my glass water bottle (which I keep in a pannier or a basket), and that the pocket digital camera belt pouch is so super for transporting boiled eggs to work (for lunch)? Oh, and that T-connector for garden hoses is the perfect fit
for Kryptonite New Yorker lock and attaches so conveniently with zip ties to the rear rack (the original Kryptonite lock's bracket self-destructed). Hmm...I have a suspicion that a lamp shade could double as a cycling helmet.
