As you probably know by now we don’t have a car. I have a driver’s license but I haven’t driven since we moved into our old house when I drove the truck. That was 13 years ago. What can I say? I hate driving.
We live in a city with great public transportation and I hardly ever miss having a car. Some of you have asked how we schlepp stuff home though so I thought I’d show you my little chariot.
Aside from a black plastic basket at the back of my bike and a wicker one at the front on a metal rack I have a little cart that gets hooked up to the back of the bike. The funny thing is that that cart used to look like this some twelve years ago or so when Martin used to drop off and pick up Wille from day care in the city center when we first moved into our old house. After Wille got too big for it Martin rebuilt it so we could transport stuff in it instead of kids. And it’s still going strong! Only yesterday I had two big hauls, one with garden soil, paint and groceries in the morning and one with frames and other home supplies later in the day.
And yes, both of our bikes are black and so’s my little chariot. Lucky me that Wille liked black too for his fairly new ride so it’s all nicely coordinated at the front of the house!
Ok, so here’s the deal about my little break. I’ll be posting my 366 weekly photos on Monday but then I’ll probably take the rest of that week off. It’ll be weird. But nice!
