Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (#495) and a brief comment…

On the bike…Slightly more than $120 in groceries. I was shopping at a local grocery store yesterday. It’s not my favorite store but it is the closest to my house; this is mainly the reason I go there (but they do have good prices on produce). And one of the things I like about thisContinue reading “Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (#495) and a brief comment…”

Lawn Surfing…or parking lot surfing, or road surfing, or…

Okay, this takes the tiny house movement to a whole new level. That’s Alexander Main in the above photo in the midst of building his bicycle RV, which he now lives in. When he parks it at night he refers to it as “lawn surfing” (nice). Here’s a picture of the finished RV below. WhileContinue reading “Lawn Surfing…or parking lot surfing, or road surfing, or…”

Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (#448)…plus Dominic and his Dog

On the bike (above)…an antique oak table. About the below photo…Generally speaking the Things That Can be Carried on a Bike series are pictures of things that I carry on my bike. But sometimes I photograph other people carrying things with bikes that I find interesting. The below photo is one of them. That’s DominicContinue reading “Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (#448)…plus Dominic and his Dog”

Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (#443)…and a couple comments

On and being pulled by the bike…$184.67 in groceries. Comment #1…I went to a big box supermarket today, haven’t been to one on a while. Not that I’m boycotting them or anything…I just don’t find them that convenient and would much rather shop in a smaller store. Anyhow, as my merchandise was being rang outContinue reading “Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (#443)…and a couple comments”

More on the Trailer

This post is related to my prevous post regarding my latest experiment in self-propelled mobility…a trailer attached to the Mundo. A few people have asked me how I attached the hitch to the bike seeing the Mundo–with its long wheel base–is not suited for an attachment to the traditional axle attachment. How I attached thisContinue reading “More on the Trailer”

Increased Capacity

If you’ve been to this blog before you know that I ride a bike as often as I can, not great distances or in races but for my everyday transportation around town…and I also like to carry stuff on my bikes, whatever stuff a person would normally carry in their car. Besides my cargo bikeContinue reading “Increased Capacity”

Why I Like to Carry Things on My Bike(s)

The title to this post should really read: Why I Like to Carry Things on My Bike(s) and Why I Like to Take Pictures of the Things I Carry on My Bikes and Then Sometimes Write About it. But then again I don’t really care for lengthy headings. I’m of course referring to the ThingsContinue reading “Why I Like to Carry Things on My Bike(s)”

Things That Can Be Carried On (or pulled by) a Bike (#187)

$58.61 in groceries. Yup, still have a flat on the Mundo so I took the Dahon out with it’s Bike Rev trailer…A completely different ride but still just as fun.

Ride A Bike That You Truly Like

I know this may seem silly, but the other day as I was happily pedaling around town on my Mundo the words of the title to this post came to me: Ride a bike that you like. It may seem obvious, but I don’t think it’s overtly so. Now this too may be a rashContinue reading “Ride A Bike That You Truly Like”
