Today, I finished one of the Social Cycling Summer Game's events. I say hi to lots of fellow bikers, but since I have a harder time taking a photo then, I opted to drop a nice note on someone's bike. I found this bike at the local grocery store, (it's coincidently also a Rocky Mountain), and left a nice note on it. The note mentions about the local Critical Mass, and I added a nice personal note to it. I leave these Critical Mass notes on all bikes that I see, even to bicyclists that I meet at lights. A nice way to let people know about Critical Mass. Riding the CR this Friday will help me complete the second event. :)
I like my Basil bags. Even though I have a hybrid bike, they look great with my bike! I get lots of good comments over them. They hold a lot of food, or other items, I am actually amazed at times HOW much they hold. I just wanted to be different and stylish in my own way. Though I have to admit, I'm prepping for a multi-day bike tour this Summer, so I've bought some spandex shorts and bike gloves and am wearing them to get used to them before the trip.. Around town, I wear street cloths usually.
Anyways, the bike bags are very versatile! I carried a Poinsettia to work the other day. It lost a couple branches, but it'll be ok. I want a trailer sometimes, like a Croozer cargo trailer, but have resisted buying one so far. Here's my bike with bags carrying the plant.
For those new to my blog, my bike is a 2008 Rocky Mountain Hybrid bike, which is actually built in Canada! Except for perhaps needing a chainguard, it's awesome. I have already almost 3000 kms on it (1864 miles) I would like to get a beater bike for winter and perhaps a Bike Friday fold up one day. Always got to have bike dreams. :)
