    30-pack of shower caps: $2.50

    Dry head on tonight's ride home: eight and one-third cents.

    I'll be riding by there tomorrow morning. I think it would be a bad day to try and take the shortcut around that section.

    I'd bet on a cyclist. I've picked up people's panniers before - one had gov't ID and gov't issued cell phone in there. If your wallet was in there someone will probably find you.
