    Up north we don’t find your fancy pants ‘money’ and ‘sunglasses’ but I have found a bike pump and a sexy bra. I use the former all the time, the bra was too small though.

    That roll of tape!?

    Was it silver, and had one end free?

    Saw a BIG dildo by the side of the road once (didn’t pick that one up!!) and tent pegs (had them away as mine were all bent from camping in Wales on rock with a thin layer of turf).

    Lots of children and adults that should know better but ride off the kerb right in front of the me without looking; collected one kid (couldnt swerve) I stayed up, he went down and was very upset, hopefully a lesson learned from a lucky escape.

    Lots of nice ratchet straps off of trucks, some good tarp, several wallets (all returned, one put through someones door based on the address of their drivers license), a selection of drugs (a bag of weed, several small bags of pills and a fairly large bag of unknown white powder) sunday mornings riding past night clubs as they kisk out is always a laugh!, 2 mobile phones (retuned, one owner gave me a bottle of wine), a perfectly good tyre for a road bike, some nice drinks bottles, a lot of broken glass and a bag of shopping at a bus shop (bread, fish fingers, cake, eggs etc).

    Wouldn’t mind some new oakleys though…

    Found all sorts of toot when out and about. Nowt worth much, though.

    Found a wallet once, returned it to owner, got me and bionickev a couple of beers.

    Found a whole bike outside the foot tunnel; bit battered up old Sturmey Archered shopper. Actually, make that two; found another one in the street outside.

    Tends to be stuff like helmet peaks and that, when out on the trails.

    A couple of phones (both out of charge) and a rear bike light (had just lost mine so that was fortuitous). I’ve seen lots of gloves, shoes etc but never stopped to investigate!

    MrNutt – you tried it?

    Only ever found a hi-viz/reflective site waistcoat. Says “Work Safe. Home Safe” on it. Wear on the commute every day.

    No pron, though. I too blame the internet.
