I really have no idea how my eyes pick up such small anomalies when I am cruising along. Thanks to my mom I will always pick up money when I find it, all found money is good luck, heads up or not. After years of riding the biggest jackpot has been a $5 bill blowing down the street in the dusk. Aside from money there have been wrenches, hammers, bungee chords, a soma steel core tire lever the other day and all the wild food I post about on occasion. Bicycle luggage catalyzes this phenomenon since you have the improved ability to actually carry found loot home.
What treasures have you been able to score on your rides?
