Things That Can Be Carried On A Bike (#39)

24 Mason jars.
An 80 foot garden hose.
A gym bag full of wet clothes.
3 rolls of paper towels.

I always enjoy the comments and looks I get riding this bike, especially when it's loaded...but I received one of the best comments today while riding down trendy Elmwood Avenue during peak rush hour. It was from a young woman riding a fixie going in the opposite direction. She was on the opposite side of the street and as she passed she sat up, took both hands off her handlebars in order to cup her mouth and yell: "Hey buddy, nice rack." It made me smile.
