Thanks for the free tubes.

Two of them, Sand hill Rd between Branner and Saga Ln tossed to the side of the road in the landscaping. Easy to spot, thanks

Hard to believe it is the handiwork of someone here on the forums, but please folks take your stuff home, and don't litter. It's not like we need any more negative impressions against cyclists.

Agreed. I've also been seeing increasing numbers of used CO2 cartridges left by the side of the road - and sometimes right in the road where another cyclist might run over them.

I get steamed every time I see something like this on the side of the road. There's no excuse. Clean up after yourself.

I see this crap all the time around here. Even up in the beautiful Sierra foothills I see used Gu wrappers on the side of the road.

Ugh, the CO2 cartridges, Gu (or whatever's popular nowadays) packets and Clif bar wrappers. What the hell is wrong with people?

Can't say I've seen a tube, though I wouldn't be surprised.

First and foremost: people should clean up after themselves. It's really appalling that someone would throw a tube on the side of the road like that.

Second: Who gets flats on Sand Hill anymore? Sounds karmic in some way.

One time after fixing a flat I forgot a nice tire lever out on Uvas road and didn't realize it until I got home. I hope someone found it and got some good use out of it!

Not bike trash, but one morning I stopped and picked up a bunch of trash on the bike path, shopping bag, two candy wrapper, water bottle
and the sales ticket from a store just at the end of the path. Not out of my way so I stopped at the store and asked the manager if he could
check the video at the time of the sale, he said he didn't need to, it was a store employee, their number was on the ticket so they could get
their discount. He called her in the office and confronted her with the trash and told her she could go to the police station and volunteer for
community service or loose her job! She picked up trash with the inmates for four days, forty hours.
