Just something quick I put together after this morning’s incident. It would mean the world to me if people took the couple seconds to check that it’s safe before swinging a door open.
Today I was at the bike shop getting a new seat and a girl came in saying her seat was stolen today just a couple blocks away from where mine was. If you are locking your bike in the Soho/Noho/Astor Pl area you should beware. Someone is clearly out to get some bike seats and they have tools. My seat was not quick release.
After looking into a few different baskets, someone suggested I consider a pannier. But if I get one of those I would rather it also be a backpack so it’s easy to carry when I am not on the bike. Any suggestions of where I can get a good one that is also not expensive?
Do any of you have them? I think it’s time for me to get one. I learned today that my shoulder dislocations happen because there is a tear in my labrum. I had been sitting in the doctor’s office for a long time and wanted to get out of there so I didn’t think of asking the doctor how the tear happens. But my dad said it’s possibly from carrying a heavy backpack on my back on a bike. That makes some sense to me. So now I am researching baskets. Even though I don’t really like them. What is the difference between baskets in the front or back? Also I have seen collapsible baskets but those look smaller than regular ones. Any suggestions?
Usually my backpack is big enough for taking what I need for the day (although sometimes it’s really heavy), but today it wasn’t and I couldn’t take my bike :( It might be time to get a basket of some sort. I really don’t want to because I don’t see myself as the kind of person who has a basket on their bike. Not sure what to do.
