First Real Grocery haul today!
Oh sure I have stopped in and picked some stuff up every now and then. But I have always been leery of doing the whole "shopping trip" thing. Space was always my main concern. With a regular bike with regular panniers I was always afraid that I would run out of room. We buy a LOT of groceries at a time. Well, I had my new (to me) Miniute siting in the driveway so I figured, "WHy not". I bought it to transport my kid to school over roads that I find too unsafe for trailers and such but it IS a cargo bike, so off I went.
I learned a few things, for sure. Like, back racks don't work and you really can't fit that
many groceries in those big Kona bags.
Any way, it's just a grocery run. Not in the least "epic" but it was a pretty big deal to me, Her's the bike loaded down:
