Basket or bag on road bike?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Basket or bag on road bike?

Is it possible to install a basket or bag/rack on a road bike?

If you have a water proof backpack already then I suppose its much better to have a basket installed?

If you're commuting you can add a rack and bags to your bike. There are some very nice bags out there that mount either on top of the rack or on the sides. I would imagine that would be much more comfortable than riding with a backpack. I wish I had info on brands to check out but I don't use them. A check of some online retailers should give you a pretty good idea of what available.
