This week's "Hot Deals for Cold Days" are on cycling jerseys, which got me thinking about the three back pockets on them -- and what to carry in them.
Alex Stieda, the first North American to wear the yellow jersey in the Tour de France (with 7-Eleven in 1986), wrote about what he puts in which pocket in the November issue of Bicycling:
I carry extra gloves or a phone (in a zip-lock bag) in the left pocket and a tightly rolled vest or jacket in the middle one. Food goes in the right pocket -- because I'm right-handed, that's the easiest pocket for me to reach and thus the place where I stash items I'll use most often.
I asked Scott what he carries where. He says he usually doesn't carry too much. When he does, Clif Bloks or Gu packs are in the right pocket and perhaps a nylon jacket is in the middle pocket. He keeps his cell phone and spare inner tube in his seat bag.
So...what do you carry where??
