this morning I was riding to the library, making a right turn from King William St onto Nt terrace. I was waiting behind a L-plater cruising in a BMW when I noticed a 50cent coin on the tarmac. An interesting place to find treasure, though it’s not the only object of interest I’ve come across this year:
Other things I’ve seen in the bike lane this year:
– A seat belt
– A shattered bike helmet
– A shattered child seat
– A dagger
– Unicycling to a 21st on friday evening at about 1910hrs a bloke climbing into his car looked with amazement and asked me if I was all right.
– I wore through two rear tires, once till the tube was exposed and then destroyed about a kilometre from home on my way to a lecture one morning.
– I had some blokes yell at me for no reason from a car while passing through Glynde. When I caught up to them 2.5kms up the road in Paradise I knocked on their car window only to be greeted with looks of disbelief. I asked them to wind down their windows but they just sat there looking blank so I opened their door and asked them what they’d yelled. They couldn’t believe I’d caught them and sat there for a few seconds before one of them decided it was time to deny it.
