Things That Can Be Carried on a Bike (#363)...and how things often work out.


A full sheet of drywall, cut into six pieces.

It's interesting how things often work out...it really is. Here's an example. Without going into too much detail, I am about to rehab a room in my house and there's a section of ceiling that needs to be replaced. It's only an area measuring about 12 inches by 6 feet (I'm guessing because I haven't measured it yet). I hated to buy a full sheet of drywall for such a small area--I even thought about asking the maintenance guy at work if he had some extra scraps--so I've been putting off purchasing it for a few days. Then, there I was riding the Mundo home this evening when I noticed a stack of brand new drywall pieces next to someone's trash at the curb. Well...you know the rest.

Seneca, a first-century Roman philosopher, allegedly said, "Luck is where the crossroads of opportunity and preparation meet."

The opportunity being the lower speed and view from your bike, and the preparation being that it was a cargo bike.

Good find, Joe. Thanks for keeping it out of the landfill, too.
