Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (#496)...and nice conversation with another cyclist

On the bike...two bottles of red wine and a gym bag full of wet clothes.

When I was riding to work yesterday morning I stopped at a traffic light waiting to make a left turn (no, this is not an image of that time--I don't carry bottles of wine to work with me--this was later in the evening). Anyhow, a guy pulls up next to me on a bike and stops next to me; he was going straight ahead. Out of the corner of my eye I can see him looking at my bike then glancing up at me. Finally he says, "I don't want to sound odd or anything..but nice rack!" We both laughed a bit and talked about our commutes to work, and then the light changed and we both sped off to work. But it is a nice rack, I thought to myself; this bike and my Mundo have enabled me to go car-free...and the racks are great for carrying bottles of wine :)
