  • On a bicycle ride today, I encountered the strangest thing i have ever seen in a bike lane ever.

    I know that the Portland metro area’s motto is ” Keep Portland weird”, but this takes this the concept to an extreme I do not want to ponder at any length.

    I have seen articles of clothing, cell phones, tools, candy wrappers, dolls, even prophylactics and needles thrown away along bicycle trails before, but never have I seen anything that presents as disturbing a mental image as this.

    What was so pressing, that it demanded the application of such a product, let alone the need for a four pack?

    Perhaps some one should invest in a new bicycle seat!

    I guess there are things I will just have to wonder about, and then take to my grave, I hope this is not one of those things. (the mental image would be a nightmare, and eternity is a very long time to ponder such things)
