Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (#447) and a View from My Handlebars

On the bike...A cardboard box containing a dozen eggs, a half-gallon of milk, a half gallon of orange juice, and a small canvas bag that contains--among other things--a book, a magazine, and a camera. And on the rear rack, two bags of dog food; 4 lbs, each.

Below is a picture of what I saw over my handlebars as I rode home this evening...what a beautiful evening. I worked a double shift today (Okay, only a shift-and-a-half, but it was spread out over the coarse of the day), nonetheless, I faced a stove in a stuffy kitchen for the better part of the day. And for me being able to get our of work, hop on a bike, and slowly pedal home on such a lovely evening is...well, just a really nice perk. Bikes are more than a recreational toy, and they are certainly more than a means of getting from point A to point me, they can also be a form of therapy, both physical and emotional. I'm just saying...

Urban Simplicity.
