Pictures of your road bike with... oddball things.

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Pictures of your road bike with... oddball things.

lol, this happened to me once, except I was touring, and had to backtrack 10 miles, and was still in the middle of nowhere with no food and no water except a few powerbars and beef jerky. And I had to climb the adjacent pass the next day. Luckily there was a resort (with no restaurant or food shop strangely) where the workers were having a meal together that they shared with me.
