There is a communion of more than our bodies when bread is broken and wine is drunk.

On the bike: An electric mixer, an 18-year-old sourdough starter, and all the small-wares and ingredients to to have a bread baking class.

Urban Simplicity.

Bicycling is a big part of the future. It has to be. There’s something wrong with a society that drives a car to workout in a gym.

~Bill Nye the Science Guy

On the bike…Eight 6-foot boards of lumber, two new shirts, a new pair of pants, and a camera.

Well, the title of this post–and likely some in the future–could be changed to, “Things that can be carried on a normal-sized bike.” (But what is normal?) This is my newish bike and so far love zipping around on it and am still making modifications, which will lily be ongoing. As one who likes to be able to carry things with him, I attached a basket to the rear rack, and purchased a wider front rack, to which I’ve temporarily attached another basket (soda crate) so I could use the bike to grocery shop.

With this said, on the bike: $67.00 in groceries.

Things that can be carried on a bike (#718 & #719), and a couple words…

#718 (above)…Twenty six framed photos on their way home from a show. Interestingly, in all the times I’ve transported photos to-and-from shows by bike I have only broken the glass on one frame (and it was because of my own carelessness).

#719 (below)…A brand new bike! Yup, I bought another one. A Surly Troll, which I’m pretty excited about. But more on the bike in a later post. What is interesting about this photo is that I am actually towing the bike back to the bike shop as the chain broke on it (after only three days of riding). The chain is repaired but I find it interesting that when I need to carry the big stuff or heavy stuff or long stuff I still go to my decade-old v3 Yuba Mundo. The old work horse.

Urban Simplicity.

I haven’t been using the trusty old Mundo v3 that often in recent years as I’ve other options these day, but when I need to haul large or heavy things it’s nice to know it’s still there, and geeze o’ man is it fun to ride.

Anyhow, on the bike: A cardboard box with 8 live vegetable plants, a book, a magazine, an extra front bicycle rack, and a small pile of lumber.

Another bike.

Here’s the brief story behind this photo…I had to take the Boda Boda to the shop to have some bearings replaced, so I dropped it off and walked home. They called and said it was ready so I rode the Dahon to the shop and towed it home with the Boda Boda. I’ve done this before with larger bikes but not in a while. It was fun.
