What’s in my bike basket: lunch al fresco

Picnic_Bike Picnics are one of my favorite things — both spur-of-the-moment adventuring in the park, and well-planned out feasts. What’s not to love about sitting out in nature, enjoying some company and a plate full of delicious food and wine?

Picnic_Bike_2 For the ride, I packed and brought along this Peterboro Quick-Release Bicycle Picnic Basket. Easily attachable, sturdy, and reliable to keep your precious goods in, it’s a winner for the ride.

Picnic_Bike_3 Essentially, the ideal picnic is nothing more than choosing a great location, inviting a good group of people, bringing something to sit on, and packing some delicious food and drinks.

Pincic Here is what we packed in our basket: a cozy picnic blanket, a bottle of wine, and some wine glasses (we always carry plastic as it is easy to break when you’re rolling over bumps on the road.) Keep in mind that if you’re going to haul off some food in a basket, it’s always best to place them in containers to keep them neat.

D.I.Y. Bicycle Pumpkin Carving

It’s that time of year for gools, gobblins, witches and our imaginations to take us deep into places we have never imagined of. We are thinking of a merry halloween here and pumpkin carving is just one of those activities that we look forward to this time of year. We are inspired by the many creative minds and carvers out there that we thought we would try to our own little pumpkin carving with bicycles being the art we hope to part on you. Here are some ways to carve a bicycle in a pumpkin. bicycle_pumpkin_carving Image Courtesy of Lindsay’s List
