    How to mount golf clubs?

    Has anyone seen an interesting way to mount a couple to a
    full set of golf clubs on a bicycle?

    I've ridden to the driving range with the whole set (in a bag, of course).

    Can you just tow the hand-cart?

    What do you think the offspring would look like?

    I've seen in here someone who had skis mounted to his bike, not with a coupling though. Presumably it's just a pannier.

    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    That's what we used to do when we were kids. Of course, back then greens fees on the local muni were $2.50...
    Today, I believe my jurisdiction ends here...

    We've got a local with just this set-up. Looks stable enough, anyway. That's how I'd go about it.

    Don't they do curbside recycling in your locale?

    Get a bag with the back pack type straps (ie Ping Hoofer Bags) and a good cover over the top of the bag and strap them on your back!

    Although I've never tried this as I'd probably fall on my @ss and bend my clubs!

    It's not apparent in the photo, but I have a walking bag with that kind of strap arrangement. These bags don't fit snugly like a backpack; and they carry somewhat horizontally, sticking out to both sides.

    I wouldn't try to ride a bike with one unless I absolutely had to.

    I used to tow the handcart. Tie the handle to the rear rack. No sharp turns.

    We would just hang onto the handcart with one hand and ride with the other.

    I'd probably get a stiff neck if I tried that today.

    If you are trying to carry only a few clubs, you can strap them to the top tube with the heads lying on the rear rack (also strapped down of course). I have never done it with golf clubs but I have done it with other long skinny things, in particular, file cabinet rails.
