New Gear for Commuting

I had a back rack and a folding basket put onto the commuter bike.

I bought these on close-out sale at the local bike shop so I got a good deal!

Here it is un-folded--I think its very clever!  Made by Wald, in the USA!

I will be able to carry a few more groceries this way.

I've been biking to work and to physical therapy, mes amis--he's a photo of historic Haskell Campus--the Gazebo and Hiawatha back there in the distance.  It was 108 degrees a few days ago--a record for Lawrence and also the hottest spot in the nation.  Not much green left as we've had a drought now for several weeks.  Almost 70% of the corn crop in Kansas has been lost.  It is hot here Gentle Readers of this Blog--hotter than Tucson even!

I enjoy the ride to and from work--mostly my route is under a canopy of trees so I stay a bit cooler.  The commute is only about 8 minutes, and that's bearable in the 100 degrees plus heat.

Thanks for coming along for the ride!  Cheers!  Bruce

When I was in grade school and middle school, I had a bike with baskets (non-folding) for delivering newspapers. I hauled so much stuff in those baskets.

Your folding baskets look really useful. I may have to check into those.

Thanks for my brief ride back down Memory Lane!
