Money Laundering

I forgot to take my wallet out of my jersey pocket today before it went into the washer and then dryer.

Grrr.

Next thing I know, Mueller is going to be investigating. (I laundered 45 dollars and a bunch of plastic and paper).

Anyone come up with a fool-proof way to avoid this inevitability?

Plead out and throw yourself on the mercy of the court.

Put your wallet someplace other than a pocket, such as a seat bag. Yes, it's very Fred, but you won't wash your wallet and all of its contents again.

It's leather.

Maybe I should proof-hide it.

Less than 24 hours ago, I ordered a larger seat bag so that I can do exactly that.

Embrace your inner Fred!

All 5 of my bikes have seat bags. I wouldn't have known they were uncool if I didn't read the threads on BF. But I'm old and fat so "cool" isn't really an option anymore.

Wallet? Doesn't it get all sweaty? Yuk.

I gave up on dead animal skins and use a Slimfold Nano Softshell. It's made of Tyvek. I'm sure the washing machine wont hurt it.

Even so, it goes in a ziplock when riding so that I don't have to carry an 8th grade science project petri dish in my pocket the rest of the time.

Keep in mind that you want your ID on your person in case you get separated from your bike in an incident.

I have a seat bag. And a rear rack. But this one will be bigger and match my other red Lone Peak fred bags. It just didn't have enough room for my wallet.

I'd consider this carefully. If you are in a serious crash and get separated from your bike, you may be showing up at the ER without ID or any medical records. (This may also alter the facility they take you to,)

This from someone who awoke from a coma 5 days after the crash with no idea of who I was.

Right now I usually ride with my wallet in my jersey pocket (which has insurance card, drivers license, etc) and I always keep an old drivers license in my saddle bag.

It never occured to me to carry a wallet on a ride. I have an expired drivers license and a 5 dollar bill in my seat bag and a dog tag with my medical info around my neck. But I'm an Uber Fred, not only do I have a seat bag, I also rarely wear a jersey.

Nice bike pic, BTW.

Everything in my jersey pockets are in ziplock bags, whether they survive a trip through a washer is another matter.

I never carry a wallet. Pretty much the only thing in my jersey pockets is Kleenex and Shotblocks, which I launder on a regular basis.

Wallets are so 90's
Ive got a phone case that holds my DL and 2 CCs plus cash if I need it (Ill throw the change in the saddle bag)
I have a bad habit of forgetting things and would often find myself going back to the house or somewhere else for my phone, walllet... etc.

Now its all in one place. Makes traveling easy and it will fit a hotel key as well.


With digital coming along any material items like credit cards, id's etc... will soon be a trinket of the past.

Already you can buy everything with your phone, ID on your phone, insurance on your phone.

When you give your grandkids a dollar bill they will be like.... "thanks grandpa? But what am I going to do with it?"

Get a separate wallet.. sports style (nylon or whatnot) for cycling. Keep XEROX copies of your IDs in this wallet. I use the the below Blackburn. Difficult to not notice is still in a jersey pocket when you remove your jersey.
​​​​​​Simple, cheap, water-resistant sections, and can hold a tire lever

The other tidbit I left out is I don't normally bring my wallet, but I was going to drive to a ride, decided against it when I saw where I was going was all foggy, and where I was leaving was sunny and warm. So the wallet came along primarily because I was driving, and then it was forgotten in a different jersey pocket when I went for a local ride a bit later. (So it was the disruption of a routine that got me.)

Normally I don't ride with a phone or a wallet when I ride locally.
