Two Wheels - Six Strings

Random news and thoughts about various two-wheeled projects and music, especially my band, Skull Full Of Blues.

It Worked!

Sixty-five degrees yesterday and today!  The power of the Pogies!

In other news, I got some new bike bags.

They were out of the colorful model, so I had to go with these plain-Janes.

They are pretty roomy, and they have a nice, straightforward velcro mounting system.

From the Organic Bikes website:

Organic Bikes ReClaimed Cycling Bags are made from un-used agricultural bags from Vietnam. These came from the printer as over-runs/misprints/ and end of run pieces and have been hand crafted into the finest quality cycling bags! This material would have been thrown away or burned, but now it has received another life. We use 3M reflective tape and YKK zippers, and the bags are waterproof. No two bags are the same, and proceeds from these bags go right back into the communities that hand craft them.

Today was the first day I've gotten to use them, and so far, so good.

Should have held out for the more colorful model.

That's really cool! A good use for something that would otherwise be burned or land-filled. And handy.

Those bags look both fun and useful .. AND cut down on waste. Very cool.

Very cool! I just ordered a couple of their messenger bags for give aways for our alternative commuting program at work.
