Grocery Run…

Only two panniers?

I took a quick run to the grocery store yesterday.  I was supposed to just grab a few things for lunch and dinner, but I’m so used to riding a cargo bike that I kept adding more and more large items to the cart.  I was getting a bit concerned as I packed my panniers at the checkout that I might have to sling some bags over my bars.  Luckily I just got everything to fit.

It’s pretty funny when a touring bike feels puny!…=-)

That’s funny. I have that same issue. I catch myself using my Xtracycle much more than I need to because of that “What if?” potential. Then when I force myself to ride my Cross Check, I’m always nervous about fitting it all in.

@Greco – I don’t actually think I have better access here than I did at my apartment. The garage is nice because I can make a mess and it doesn’t matter – plus I don’t have to look at all my stuff in the garage on a day to day basis which is nice. I’m riding different bikes just because the situation here in Victoria is different. In Calgary I tended to do multiple very short trips per day and bike theft was a big problem. Here I tend to do only one or two longer [5km+ rides] in a day and bike theft isn’t as much of an issue.
