Yet even more construction debris on its way to a dumpster… Urban Simplicity.
#500 (top photo)…A case of wine, a gym bag containing wet clothes, and a camera and acamera bag with an extra lens. #501 (bottom photo)…A large box of food on its way to a local food pantry. So as the big demi-mille approached I thought that I would wait and post something really substantial, somethingContinue reading “Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (ta-da…#500 & #501)…and a brief comment.”
I was looking through some photos of a trip I took to Paris with my son last July when I came across this photo of a mail carrier’s bike (click here, here, and here to see more photos from that trip). I remember seeing this bike locked to a railing and thinking how much senseContinue reading “Vélo de Poste…and a quick comment”
A book bag stuffed full of books, a camera bag containing two cameras, a classical guitar (my son’s), a laptop computer, and a camera tripod. Urban Simplicity.
Birth of an American Cargo Bike from Liz Canning on Vimeo. I’ve been meaning to post this for a while. It’s an excerpt for the upcoming documentary by Liz Canning on cargo bikes in America. Originally called (R)Evolutions per Minute it is now Less Car More Go. In this portion, which marks the very beginningsContinue reading “Less Car More Go!”
I carried these items/used my bikes since yesterday’s “incident.” I road the same route today at one point. I’m shaken but not (physically) hurt…just a small bruise on my stomach and scratch on my thigh (likely from when I was vaulted over the handlebars), and my rib cage is sore (likely from when I hitContinue reading “Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (#431, #432, & #433)…and a quick comment”
I take so many things for granted. And when I whine about my measly discomforts I should be ashamed. This video, I think, is amazing. For additional inspirational videos on the usefulness of the bicycle in Africa, visit World Bicycle Relief. Urban Simplicity.
Four cardboard boxes. Urban Simplicity.
A nylon bag containing–among other things–a laptop computer, an extra camera, a book, a journal, a small magazine, and two granola bars. Urban Simplicity.
Yup. That’s me in the above photo. Very rarely do I post pictures of myself on this blog but here’s one. And what’s even more odd is that it shows me getting into a car. My son took the photo of me getting into a Buffalo Car Share car last weekend. But as usual, I’mContinue reading “A Few Thoughts on Theology, Car Ownership, and Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (#468)”
#464 (top)…three loaves of whole wheat bread, a two-foot wooden dowel, two slices of savory vegetable Tart Tatin, four picture frame mats, a small portfolio, and a dough rising bucket. #465 (middle)…six peaches, six nectarines, a dozen apples, a half-gallon of milk, a jar of peanut butter, a jar of jelly, 5 pounds of dogContinue reading “Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (#464, 465, & 466)”
On the bike…four heavy stackable steel CD racks. A quick comment…I was on my way home from church this morning when I spotted these four racks at the curb as trash. My son, who has an ever-expanding CD collection, is in need of a few new shelves for them. Perfect. They are a simple designContinue reading “Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (#463)…and a quick comment”
A large bundle of firewood, an axe, a small shovel, and a mallet. Urban Simplicity.
Ten split logs (firewood), an axe, a small shovel, a 3lb. mallet, and a canvas bag containing–among other things–a book, a magazine, a cell phone, and an extra camera. Urban Simplicity.
On the bike…Groceries, sundries, cleaning supplies, wine, dog food and dog care products in and on two cardboard boxes and in a trailer from three separate stores. A brief comment…This is mostly but not entirely referring to a previous post where I carried home a log on a bike. Things that can be carried onContinue reading “Things That Can be Carried ona Bike (#460)…and a quick comment”
Eight Glass Blocks. Urban Simplicity.
Four picture frames (wrapped in plastic and paper). A canvas bag containing two books, an electronic reader, a journal, two new mechanical pencils, two sets of reading glasses, and a four-pack of printer ink cartridges (black and all three colors). A two pound canister of oatmeal, a pound of ground coffee, a quart of milk,Continue reading “Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (#457)”
On the bike…a Fender Stratocaster guitar, two antique picture frames (which I rescued), and a double portion of Chinese take out. A couple quick comments…I’ve mentioned on numerous occasions the many comments I get while riding or parking this bike (and if you ride a long-tail or other cargo bike you understand this completely). TheContinue reading “Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (#456)…and a quick comment”
On the bike…A full tank of propane. Comments…First of all I love the slogan that Yuba often uses, “What a bike can do.” And I love the comments and looks that I often get while carrying stuff on a bike (looks that say…I didn’t know you could do that). The above image is one IContinue reading “Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (#441)…plus a quick glance and a couple comments”
