    That's so cool. Any idea what that little stone says? It looks like someone wrote on one of them.

    This looks like an adorable little squirrel city. Just needs some squirrel sized catapults and trebuchets and we could have a real life squirrel Medieval war!

    Keeping with the Monty Python theme from the Missed Connection thread:

    Silly squirrel K-nig-hts.

    Default Lost panniers with wallet on commute home tonight

    I rode near the volleyball courts by the Memorial Bridge (the Ken Center side) and took out some gloves so had the panniers there. Then i rode to Linc Memorial and around, Ohio Drive and 14th st. bridge. Mt Vernon trail to 4 mile run then to Giant near Pot Yards. There i discovered panniers gone.

    Wallet in them.

    Any ideas? Cancel cards, etc.
    Call Natl Park Service.

    It would be cool if a cyclist found it/them

    The stone does say the name of the father and son who made it. It's a little too small for a squirrel to fit, but maybe ...a mouse city?

    FYI for those that would like to see it: it's on N Rosser St a few blocks from Skyline.

    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.

    Update: she went back and was able to find her panniers last night. She posted on Strava that she found them at the DC end of Memorial Bridge next to The Arts of War statue titled "Valor" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Ar..._Arts_of_Peace

    Ha thanks Bobco. I'm waiting for a bus in the rain and was just gonna follow up.
    It was really amazing that the bag was there 4 hrs later...untouched. Glad my friends encouraged me to go down there rather than wait.

    Also from now on...things you can't lose stay attached in pockets etc. And always make sure the panniers' straps are attached. I maybe I forgot to do that.

    Glad you got it back! One reason I really like the Ortlieb panniers is that they clamp onto the rack, and you have to actually lift the straps to unclamp them. And since each one clamps on in two places, they won't come off even if you somehow fail to get one side on at all. That makes them nearly idiot-proof. And since I'm riding every morning pre-caffeine, "idiot-proof" is a necessity!
