Bike Porn Friday: The Key (Pocket) to Success!

Much discussion has taken place, both on this site and during club rides, about keys, the pockets in which one keeps them, and the dangers and experiences and expenses of losing them, whether they belong to you, your loved ones, or indeed, anyone else. On my short ride on Thursday morning (my first time out on the bike since the Welsh Tour, about which we have yet to write a single post), I debuted the "key pocket" on my new 3/4 length cycling shorts, which I bought at the annual sale of a well-known London cycle clothing (and, apparently, "embrocation", whatever the hell that is) company:


The "key" element (try the veal!) of this pocket is that it has a zipper, which means that even if you need to make a hectic emergency "comfort" stop, the chances of your keys landing in the same place as your waste, or in a hedge nearby, are minimal, at most.

Flotsnoo!

Play us into the weekend, Doug:

  1. By my reckoning, that key pocket is worth at least £133.

  2. What's "A Doucebag," douchebag? Now I gotta correct the club's spelling in addition to pointing out its moral failings?

  3. A bag of mollification:

    trans. To sweeten; to soften, mollify, soothe.
