Well, I was all set to recommend a backpack or a fanny pack, but I guess I
won’t. There are small packs that mount onto bicycles, and you may be able to
use one of them.

Tie it into the laces of your shoes, and tuck the end of the key into the laces.

Re: Carrying things on your uni

I put a water bottle on my uni recently. As I was mounting the bottle cage,
using some small frame clamps, I realized that I could very easially mount two
bottle cages using the same clamps. It then occured to me that I could use the
second cage, to carry a container to hold small articles, keys, etc. A water
bottle would not have to be used to carry the objects either. For example,
plastic soda pop bottles fit the bottle cages perfectly. A trip to the
supermarket would probably reveal all sorts of light-weight containers to fit to
the cage. Mark

My first 2 bottle cages were attached using these clamps. The problem is that
the clamps hold the bottle too tightly - the cage gets bent when the uni gets
dropped and can’t be bent back too easily. After a while they break.

For the third cage I used plastic plant ties (about a dozen of them). It
still twists, but it twists back again easily. It’s been on there now since
August with no real problems.
