    Missing front wheels...2 different occasions!

    Hey you fantastic forum readers and writers,

    I have a huge favour to ask for some friends of mine.

    The first friend, lets call him K, left his front wheel and tire after riding the Don Valley starting in the Loblaws parking lot. He was there about two weeks ago.

    The second friend, lets call him R, left his front wheel in the parking lot at Walker Woods near Durham forest. He was there yesterday.

    If you guys come across any found 26" QR front wheels, can you please PM me....That's of course if you want to return them to their rightful owners.

    Either way, thank you for reading and yes I agree it's a little funny. haha

    those guys must ride really hard and be completely exhausted to leave wheels behind. Maybe it was the post ride activities.

    I think everyone knows that's Ryan Leech hopping across the rocks.

    Hahaha the video doesn't exactly depict their riding styles. I also don't think it was the after ride activities... Although on the second occasion we did have a surprise downpour and that could have rushed the packing up process.

    Either way, the first dude just bought a new wheel...

    Thanks for reading guys and gals. Lol

    I know there are decent people out there.

    I left my CamelBak at Durham Forest years ago after a night ride.

    That was the thought that woke me up the next morning. I didn't know whether to go back and see if it was there or not. I started doing the math; $80 CamelBak, $30 multi tool, $25 pump, $15 CO2, $8 tube v.s. $30 407 toll + gas from Milton to Uxbridge. Came close to a draw, then I remembered my NiteRider battery was in it too.

    I did make the drive and someone had set it neatly at the sign in the parking lot. Whoever that person is, they have a positive balance in the Karma bank.
