IN OLD TIME MOVIES THE ACTORS WOULD GO FROM FLIRTATIOUS TO DISHEVELED IN BED SMOKING A CIGARETTE signaling they'd just had a good roll in the sack. Around these parts, bike riders go from kitted up to disheveled and mowing down pastries chugging their favorite liquid... signaling we've just had a good roll through the citycountrytrails.
It's a favorite ritual of mine, and I like it alone.
Recently I found a place with bomb breakfast burritos. So much more than a waif pastry.
I order... well first I make sure to grab my chair and table on the busy sidewalk...
A blondie always asks Traditional or vegan.
It feels a little like a question of morals...
It's only a question of calories for me.
Then I wait... longer than you'd think. But, I enjoy the anticipation. Do they make them from scratch when ordered or just heat up something made earlier in the day? Don't know, don't care. It's that good.
Today as I was savoring my burro, I met P. He's a government contractor who cares for the wounded from Los Altos to Pendleton to San Diego. Super good dude.
Where'd you ride?
Up here and over there.
I used to ride a lot... never could get comfortable with the shoes and being locked in.
Yeah, it's tricky.
Now I swim.
After a good while chatting and people watching - I find tourists to be highly entertaining - I head home.
At some point, I realize my wallet is missing.
This isn't just any wallet. It's my RaceDay wallet, and I know there's no way it fell out of my jersey. I check everywhere around the house. Nada. Then it hits me... I must have left it at my stop. And I'll bet good ol' P found it and turned it.
High Tide Coffe, this is Nick.
Hi Nick, it's Todd... I think
Hey brother, I have your wallet.
See ya in 5.
I pull up on my scooter.
Yeah, thanks so much.
Who found it?
Bethany, it was on the chair.
High Tide Coffe... good burritos, great morals!
I guess the only negative on the RaceDay wallet is it's made from bicycle inner tubes and it's a little hard to see. On, and it's super soft. And quiet. Meaning, if you lay it down on a black chair while eating an amazing breakfast burrito you might forget it after being in culinary euphoria.
But, that's it.
I know a lot riders prefer a sandwich baggie or some other plastic thingy to carry some cash, ID, and CCs... but, there's really no comparison.
