The paper towel is used to prevent the rattling of the loose stuff and something to wipe my hands on if the issue is chain related.

Consider a pair of nitrile gloves instead.. to stop rattling and keep your hands clean.

Do they allow visitors to your nursing home?

Hey, I'm just reading a "thriller" novel where they talk about "Murder Mountain" where all the weed is grown!!!!

Ironically, I work at a nursing home.

The whole "Murder Mountain" thing is mostly sensationalist BS. I spent 2 years "on the Hill," working on a farm. The only neighbors I was ever worried about were the bears, and even them, not much. The only thing we were really scared of was fire. When it's 115 degrees and 6% humidity, and then the wind starts blowing, and it's a 35 minute dirt-road drive to the highway, you tend to get a little bit nervous...

A serious cyclist will have a soigneur who takes care of these things even before the cyclist thinks of them. If one is a humble domestique or gregario and lacks a personal soigneur, speak to your directeur sportif, he will instruct you.

I use a fanny pack when I run an errand to pickup or drop off stuff. Doesn’t make my upper back sweaty or interfere with cycling. Not concerned what other people think about what I wear, seriously and humorously.

Happily mediocre at a low skill activity
