Transporting Things

For some reason, I get a kick out of transporting what many would consider odd things on a bike.  For example, two lamps on a cargo bike, which isn’t even a challenge:

The poles are so hidden in the bags they don't even make it into the picture

The poles are so well hidden in the rear bags that they don’t even make it into the picture.

Another pretty easy one is pizza delivery:


A longer bungee cord would have worked better around the sides, but I didn’t have much with me.  And thanks to Dale at Johnny’s Mia Roma for helping to make sure the pizza was safe (it was).

And sometimes the loading process makes the whole stop more fun.  I rode down to Kringles Bakery in Redmond on a very rainy day to pick up a lemon meringue pie.  The conversation went something like this:

So you’re going to take the pie home on your bike?

Yeah, it should be fun.

How are you going to do that?

I have no idea, but I have lots of bungee cords.

There was a lot of laughter in the rest of that conversation.  To be truthful, I did have a plan, bringing along a larger box to fill with the bakery box and padding, but I wasn’t sure how it would be attached:


The bakery box barely got wet in the downpour:


and the pie was unscathed:


and delicious.
