I took my cargo bike, Root Beer, down to Home Depot this afternoon and did a propane exchange. The new canister of gas for the BBQ weighs 40 lbs. With the help of all-versatile IKEA bag it packed onto the bike easily and the ride home was an uneventful breeze.
I usually say, "Ordinary people, doing ordinary things, on ordinary bikes." But that would be stretching the truth a bit here. Root Beer is not an ordinary bike. He's designed to carry 400 lbs. But perhaps with a little imagination we can get a few more of his kind onto the road so that he becomes more ordinary.
