I have been slowly collecting accessories and tools that will start to make riding my bicycle every day a reality. My latest find is re-usable, easy clean, compact grocery bags. Now I can still use my own grocery bags when shopping and forgo the plastic without the bulk of my traditional shopping bags. And…they come in PURPLE!!! (They have other colors too, but I am not sure why?! LOL)
They come in a five pack for $12.99 and if you have Amazon Prime they ship for free. I can fit all five of them into a backpack without adding much weight or bulk. Plus, I am ordering a rack and insulated bag that they will easily fit into. Thinking I may need to change out my tires once I add this extra weight to my bicycle, but that is a story for another time.
With the creation of my “Bicycle Riding Uniform”, the addition of helpful accessories, and becoming a more confident rider is making becoming a year round everyday rider a reality. What I want everyone to know though is that you don’t have to go out and spend a bunch of money on gadgets, gizmos, and clothing. You can make a difference by choosing to ride your bicycle to the store, coffee, or for fun just once a week. And…you just ride the bicycle you have, the clothes in your closet, and the backpack/bag you own.
Even the things I am doing aren’t costing me a lot of money. I am buying things when I have the funds while shopping for the best deal on quality products.
Have you found some great things that have made bicycling easier for you?
