Over time I’ve investigated a number of options for carrying my shopping from the supermarket to my house. I started off simply loading the shopping on my handlebars. This, as you would expect, often turns into a bit of a disaster and makes for some very wobbly steering. I’ve also tried a big gym bag that I lug over my back. The weight of the shopping always makes it rather uncomfortable. Panniers are another option but I prefer riding without my rack attached so each time I have to re-attach it. Plus, carrying the bags around the supermarket is a pain. Perhaps a solution would be to go with something extreme such as the Burley Travoy Urban Trailer System. At £251 it’s an expensive option and doesn’t look particularly attractive. However, it would certainly get the job done.
How do you go about getting your shopping from the supermarket to home?
