Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (#396)...and a quick comment
Things on the bike (above)...A gym bag full of wet clothes, a 4lb bag of dog food, and 3L of red wine.
Below is a self-portrait of sorts...I took it yesterday as I coasted past a particularly reflective stretch of windows in an office building downtown. I wasn't going to post it (never really cared for seeing photos of myself) but as I was going through photos today and saw it, it made me think. Of all the things that I carry on bikes sometimes I forget. Often it's when pedaling uphill or into a strong headwind, but still I forget, or maybe I just take it for granted. What I'm talking about is the efficiency of a bicycle as a transportation machine. Sometimes I forget that the bicycle is the most efficient means of transport there is...and that the most precious cargo any bike can carry is the rider themselves.
