Forgotten cycling gear

A few months ago I drove over near Slovenia, parked and got ready to ride, when I realized I'd forgotten my tire changing levers and wouldn't be able to fix a flat.  I abbreviated my originally planned ride, and luckily avoided a flat.  A few other times I've forgotten my cell phone or gloves or sunglasses but rode without them.

But the last week or so I've noticed two cycling bloggers who both forgot their shoes and ended up riding on clipless pedals with street shoes.  These are experienced racers, so I'm taking it as a sign.  If I was in the Air Force again I would make a checklist and tick off the items before departing.  On second thought I'll probably keep looking over my gear just before leaving and hope for the best.
