What's this doing on the Chicago Lakefront Trail #chilft ?

"Hi Tom, I have 2 lezyne portable pumps  I like a lot. Both have a small hose, stored inside the handle, that is reversable and has both valves. The great thing about the hose is that it helps avoid breaking the valve stem on the tube. Bruce"
