Biking Without our Trailer

Brent fashioned some totes to the cargo bike yesterday for groceries. We hauled the trailer out on Saturday for all our gear, but today I was stumped.

Brent left two bikes at school this morning so I could pick up the children with the cargo bike and Elliot and London could ride home independently. I gave a few thoughts to how I was going to haul snacks, diaper bag, waters, tools and anything else. I initially thought it would just go in the back pack, but then it rained and looked like more rain was coming. My list of things to bring was growing. I had a towel, extra rain coats for those who forgot them, and extra snacks in case we got stuck at school in addition to everything mentioned previously. My backpack was bulging and the lunch box and Avery's forgotten helmet didn't fit. I considered strapping the totes on, but I couldn't figure out how to work the belt clamps with Oliver running a muck in our disastrous garage. I loaded everything into the trailer, as it's the perfect wagon, but our current hitch didn't fit on the Yuba Mundo because the frame is larger than other bikes. Frustration leads to inspiration and in this case I solved my problem creatively. I strapped the backpack to the deck of the bike with bungee cords and used the helmet straps to secure the lunch tote to the rear of the child seat.

These are problems I enjoy solving.
