Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (#555)

A Camera bag. A new book (this one, which I’m really excited about). Two new pairs of pants. Eight wood panels measuring 2ft by 4ft each (two full sheets of 1/2inch plywood quartered), and four 6ft boards.

Things That can be Carried on a Bike (#544) and a view from my handlebars on a crisp autumn night

On the bike…A gym bag containing wet clothes. A large plastic box containing groceries, sundries, and red wine. Sixteen 2x4s.

The view…From Elmwood Avenue looking towards Buffalo’s West Side at sunset.

Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (#540)

A few groceries. A gym bag full of wet clothes. The rear wheel off my Torker Cargo-T (having a spoke replaced at the local bike shop), and also general maintenance…a cold, windy, rainy day is a great bike repair day.

Things That can be Carried on a Bike (#529 & #530)…and a brief comment

#529 (above)…two loaves of freshly baked bread on their way to my church for World Communion Sunday,  and a change of clothes wrapped in a plastic bag (so I would have dry clothes to change into when I arrived as it was pouring rain).

#530 (below)…A cardboard box full of food on its way to a local food pantry, and a camera bag and book bag that are wrapped in a plastic bag because it was raining.

A brief comment…So about two minutes after taking the below photo I rounded a corner–one I do nearly every day, so I wasn’t really thinking about it–and I hit a patch of wet leaves in the rain and the bike quite literally slipped out from under me. It was the oddest thing, it just sort of slid out and left me standing there. It fell with a clunk (v3 Mundos are heavy) but nothing fell off, not even the cardboard box. I simply lifted the bike up and went on my way.  🙂

On the bike (and in the trailer)…groceries, sundries, dog food, and a gym bag.
