Not that heavy, but bulky enough to warrant an image.




Two trashcans, and a new mailbox (someone was playing mailbox baseball, my box was an out).

My bike has been working pretty hard of late... this was actually a smallish load compared to yesterday.

Today's hauling was so much lighter... besides the usual toolkit and locks I had a blanket, a good quantity of water and a little picnic lunch.

And some good helpers to carry things and help set things up.

It's almost 20 feet. The trailer, kayak and gear are about 100 pounds.

By bike? Our recycle bins are 7 meters away. Then the next set is 200 meters away, but that is for some of the other residents.

8 miles and 38lbs of aluminum cans (not including the weight of the trailer which is probably 20 - 25) equals more strenuous than I thought but worth the $27 I got for the cans... A nice inaugural ride for the trailer I built last month, I had done some test pulls when it was empty but this the first time I loaded it up.

moved a baker rack and a bike
This was a partial bike move. I have gotten all my belongings to fit on a bike which I can move myself. Which is more impressive for me than moving by bike since I am the one moving all my stuff.
I had a truck haul a load I carpooled and he met me on his way to the cohouse.
