This morning I walked the 24 kms (via the Voie Verte) from Lavelanet home to Puivert.
Nothing unusual about that - I do it most Friday mornings.
What is unusual is that today I immediately went out again to cover most of the route by bicycle, because when I got home I realised that I had lost my pepper spray en route. I did not find it.
It is a very small aerosol. The most prominent marking on it just says "Protect", so I hope a cyclist does not find it and start spraying it onto his gears! Even more fervently, I hope a child does not find it and decide to press the button. I think I'm pretty safe there as I have never seen an unaccompanied child on that track. In fact I rarely see anybody.
