Riding bicycles will not only benefit the individual doing it, but the world at large.” ~Udo E. Simonis, Emeritus Professor of Environmental Policy at the Science Centre, Berlin

On the bike:  One 4x4x8 cut into three lengths, two 2x4x10 cut into five foot lengths, 2 loaves of bread, a banana (fuel), two bottles of water, two new pairs of work pants, a new pair of jeans, a camera, and a small bag containing various hardware items.

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.

Two boxes of groceries, four tacos, a gym bag, and a bottle of red wine.
