The Weekly Shop by Bike

The weekly shop by bike
The Dawes in the foreground is under the cycle shelter at Sainsbury's at Selly Oak. It's loaded with a week's groceries for two people. The Karrimor panniers expand and only rarely have insufficient capacity, in which case additional items can be placed on the rack or in a rucksack. The rack is equipped with a Dutch snelbinder (a permanently mounted bungee, not visible in this photo), which is useful for securely holding additional items.
