In the movie The Spy Who Shagged Me, Austin Powers recites, “spectacles, testicles, wallet and watch[…]”. Before I go anywhere on my bike, I too have a similar checklist (sans testicles unless I am biking to a restaurant with my husband ;-)) However, my list is of the essentials I need for traveling around town on my bicycle. To help me remember, I created the acronym B.L.A.T. No…not bacon, lettuce, avocado and tomato (although you could bring these along as well)!
The list could go on and on to include sunscreen and so forth but I tried to limit it to the essentials I would check and carry when riding that I wouldn’t necessarily bring when driving.
