Okay, but my plans are to be cremated.

I wonder....would if the volume of cremated remains fit in a good sized water bottle? Then they could be placed in the water bottle cage for transport to the final destination.

You can find formulas for cubic inches of ash/pound of body weight. I think that only the smallest of cyclists would fit in one water bottle, but I like the idea and many bikes have two cages. I've even got some bottles that probably ought to be buried.

That would make it much easier on the hearse rider.
