bicycles carrying large or weird loads picture thread

Prompted by my frequently carrying groceries and packages by bicycle, by the picture in the "Bikes We Like" thread showing a guy on a small wheeled folder carrying a bicycle frame larger than his bike, and by my promise to a friend to post her picture of me carrying one of my loads, I thought a picture thread of bicycles carrying large or weird loads would be fun.

Maybe trikes shouldn't count, since they take out the fun balancing part…..but if one is carrying a really weird load, hmmm….

This is what I had in mind:



Can't tell if that stuff is heavy, so they might be slackers.

This looks light, so there is some slacking off. Some credit for the bowed head load though:

After seeing the live sheep video, this guy is way down on credits. Now if that pig was live and squealing and squirming like a bratty little kid stuck in a car trip, he'd get extra credit. Still not as good as the two!! live!! sheep!!

Ok, ok, I'm breaking my own trike rule, but this is too good. Why let a little death stop you from biking:

Been ogling too many high fashion models instead of thinking about stability:

I suspect this is heavy, but it looks like the bike is being walked rather than ridden:

This is my favorite so far because it fits the qualifications of being both large and weird. But seriously, what are those things?

Theses slackers walking might as well use a hand truck. Where's Strickland when you need him.

..On the other hand, sometimes slacking can be used to your advantage:

I'd planned on hauling a deer carcass home but it was getting kinda ripe. Maybe I'll have some nice bones after the turkey vultures finish.
