The Grocery Run

Friday was a "meh" day for me.  While I had the day off from work and had plenty of art to do, I felt sluggish and not-up-to-par.  But there was something I knew had to get done, and that was groceries.  So I pulled out the most appropriate tool for the job, my Worksman cycle truck!

The ride to Trader Joes in the Hollywood District was ok, though it was pretty wet the whole way.  (The weather report only called for a "slight" chance of showers, so much for the forecast.)  The ride to TJ's is mostly downhill, though.

The ride back was tougher, since I had a loaded basket and it was more uphill.  The cycle truck is no light bike, that's for sure!  Thankfully I didn't buy it with the idea it was going to be my daily commuter.  It works great as a cargo bike, though!

So how much did I get?  As you can see, I loaded it up quite good.  Two full bags of groceries, plus a 12 pack of toilet paper.  It's a tight fit, but it worked!

  1. Wow! Very impressive. I would love to believe I could do that. And I love Trader Joe's, but the nearest one to me is about 20 miles away :).
