Things That Can Be Carried On A Bike (#285)...and a quick comment
Three liters of wine, a gym bag full of wet clothes, and $27.61 in groceries, sundries, and other toiletries.
As I was loading my purchases onto the Mundo I saw a friend in the parking lot of the store. He told me I looked a little crazy carrying all that stuff on a bike, and that he would feel self-conscious doing so. I reminded him of two things: (1) that I stopped caring what people thought about me quite some time ago, and (2) what I had on the bike was not all that much...that it is capable of carrying so much more. What I didn't say (but I thought as I rode away), was we'll see who looks crazy as the petrol problem gets worse...and worse and worse. Another thing I failed to mention to my friend was that I think I am a little bit crazy...crazy for life. Because while I still own a car (truck actually), I find riding my bikes way more fun.
