Best Way To Carry Stuff On Your Bike Commute

- Advertisement -

Getting to work on your bike is only half the job. The tough part is figuring out how to get all your stuff there too. Your lunch bag, your coffee, your Hand sanitizer (c’mon, it’s still Covid time), how do you carry it?

I decided to test four of the most popular methods to determine the most efficient and simple way to carry stuff.

I tested:

  • 1:08 – Panniers (or saddlebags)
  • 3:33 – Basket
  • 6:11 – Milk Crate
  • 8:42 – Backpack
  • 10:55 – My favorite

Nice panniers, right?

They were given to me by @Vincita – thanks to them. If you like the look of it, you can check it out her.
