What's in your saddle bag?

Notices
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

"Saddle bag"? What is this thing of which you speak? I do not know of such a thing as would be attached to a road bike.

The usual stuff plus a few ibuprofen tablets an a few bee sting swabs. This year I've given more bee sting swabs away to other riders than I've used myself. They work well to take the sting out, I buy them at REI.

You'd be amazed at how many people don't know what those pouch-like things on the back of their jersey are good for.
