bamboo bicycle panniers
This is so cool. Bamboo panniers made so that the common grocery bag fits perfectly in each space provided. The whole pannier is easily attached and removed with bungee cords on the standard metal back rack. As you can see, I've can load some major loads. my record is $77 worth- including heavy stuff like a gallon of milk, and beer, of course.
I have launched a program to use my bicycle and bamboo panniers for all our grocery needs. No fossil fuels, and it is great sport. So efficient: loading, unloading, and the actual peddling from home, to store, to home. I live in the small town of Ashland- very bike friendly. I can take the bike path most of the way to our favorite grocery store- and it is mostly downhill for the loaded ride back.
I now employ re-usable canvas grocery bags, instead of the paper bags shown - even more eco-logical. Ultimately, I want to add a front set of bamboo panniers- for a four bagger. Stay tuned....
