One of the things about bike commuting is that you’re much more aware of the junk on the road than you would be in a car. This inevitably leads to the discovery of what I call Road Treasures. Some are accidental losses others are deliberately discarded but it’s always weird to find something in perfect condition lying in the gutter.
Here’s a list of some the things I’ve found over the years:
An unopened pack of clothes hangers
A wallet (returned to owner)
A photo album (never claimed)
A homemade CD of a live reggae performance
An IDE hard drive
A videotape with contents not fit for a family blog
An estwing hammer
A diaper bag full of used diapers (eww)
And best of all
A spoke wrench no doubt lost by a fellow bicyclist.
