Batman's wandering pannier

Over a week ago, Batman set out to a local society meeting on his bike. He put one pannier, containing useful meeting documents in it, onto the bike. As he cycled near Cemetery Road, somehow the pannier came loose and fell into the road. He stopped to look back, couldn't see it and was stumped. Stumped until a passerby pointed toward Fulford and said he'd seen the pannier, attached to a car's wheels, zooming away. Weird. Why didn't they stop? Perhaps they didn't realise.

Anyway, we thought that was the last we'd see of it. Batman has bought new panniers - ones which attach themselves more securely to the bike this time :-) But today, I got a phone call from a local private school asking to get into contact with Mr Batman as they have had some of his lost property handed in. Could it be???? Indeed what else could it be? All kudos to the school for bothering to try and track him down.

I'm waiting to hear back from Batman, but if it is the wandering pannier, that's strange. The school is just off the A59. Where we live is just off the A59; I often see the school's van going to and fro to the station. Did the car that picked up the pannier do a loop past the Novotel rather than going to Fulford, but effectively taking the pannier back past us and on the way to Harrogate? Blimey, if I'd known, I would have jumped out in the road and haled the car down on that evening ... ;-)

Kudos to school indeed, and I hope it is that pannier!
