One of those things one can't do again no matter how hard one tries. Not that any will really want to try!

I once stopped and found a spider's web of tire sealant all over my rear wheel. I don't use tubeless tires or sealant and didn't remember following on anyone's wheel during that solo ride.

I once picked up a bird's nest of fishing line in my rear gears and derailleur. Glad I had a knife.
