So, what does our family do without television? We revamp a 7 dollar bike carrier purchased from a garage sale and take The Barracuda for rides.
The true intent of the bike box is to haul around books we want to resell to the used book store, future garage sale finds, or groceries. Previously, we have been limited to hauling whatever we could carry in a messenger bag and it was quite restrictive. However, The Barracuda finds this quite a nice way to travel and we might just put a couple of bike hooks on the back so that his bike can be carried along with him. If we then want to start taking longer bike tours than his little legs can handle, he and his bike can ride in the box.
