My primarily riding buddy always points out my good deeds. Yeah they probably go unpunished, but I try to make a good faith effort to return the karma.
Examples: Top of Crest Road in PV is a trash can, that might have been placed there by the city. Its small, but I usually see a few chewy bar wrappers or bottles left over from the previous nights drinking festivities. I figure if I pick it up, perhaps the trash can will continue to stay there, its a convenience.
About 6 weeks ago, we rode past a 1" x 1" x 12" sitting right in the bike lane. I missed it barely, it was the same color as the asphalt. I stopped, got off the bike and moved it past the curb. Might have prevented one of you from having an accident.
So Yesterday I saved this girl's rear. I had to ship a bare frame to the Bay Area and stopped by the PBS in Santa Monica (which was very close to a client). I was looking for a frame box (and didn't find one). I did however spot a small blue womens clutch purse on the sidewalk about 100 feet from the front door of the store. I picked it up, brought it into the store and asked to see the manager (first about the box, 2nd about the purse). I went through the purse; $100 in cash. Several gift cards including three from Victoria Secret, more gift cards.........her Church of JC Latter Day Mormon ID card.... her United Health Plan card, a photo copy of her marriage license........UCLA student ID card. Discovered a lot about this woman. No condoms or diaphragm. No phone number!!!! I got my bike box (not a frame box) and walked outside. Saw a woman and asked "Are you Brianna?" Yep. So she got her wallet/purse back. She thanked me.
I could've used that $100.
So what have you done lately?
