Put A Basket On It!

May 7, 2013

I’m a week into being car-free! Commuting to work can leave a gals back in all sorts of knots. A laptop, notebooks, and other miscellaneous items add a surprising amount of weight to a bag. In lieu of piling all the ‘essentials’ onto myself like a pack mule, I invested in a bike basket. These wonderfully practical bicycle additions come made for all sorts. Number one is strapped onto the front of my bicycle, but I love the other options. I am crazy about that waxed canvas pannier (number five)!

How do you tote everything around while you ride – are you a basket or a backpack person?

    I spent 3.5 years as a backpack person (upgraded to an internal frame hiking pack) before adding a rear rack to my bicycle. I now use the rack with a milk crate (secured with zip ties) and/or panniers.

    I’ve been rocking the spike bag since my track years and am STILL rocking it! Mine is durable, as well as reflective with neon stripes and is able to hold anything I might need (laptop, work clothes, etc.). They come in all colors and styles!

    Whoop whoop for including the ol’ milk crate! I’m also interested in trying some cool bike “saddle bags” when I have some money for them.
