Grocery Ride; my chance to brag a little

Hey there;

I just wanted to brag a little bit, because I think this is terrific. Mrs. ATCFoody and I are fairly active folks, and I've finally got the misses up for riding to the grocery store. I commute on a regular basis, but she doesn't because of the distance to work. So the amount of traffic has been a limiting force. Then she saw the bags from http://www.detours.us/index.php that allow you to have a handle bar purse that matches your bags.

Well, below you'll find a photo of her after we got back from the store. Half gallon of milk, bag of sugar, bag of powdered sugar, bag of salad, hot dog buns and some grapes. I had a gallon of orange juice and a gallon of vinegar on the back of my bike, but we're not talking about me here.

Needless to say, I'm thrilled about all this.

+1 on the saddle. The one that her bike came with was horrible. My mom got her a new one for her birthday a few years ago, and that has made all the difference. The bags are just icing on the cake.
