    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.

    Doing the right thing and rocking the boat are often one in the same.

    Well, technically speaking, one needs 3 things to qualify for recumbent ownership: a beard, an aerobelly, and a technical degree or background.

    +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.
