Whenever I'm discussing cargo bikes the topic inevitably shifts to grocery retrieval. It seems that when people think of cargo bikes they try to imagine the heaviest thing in their lives and apply it to a bike trip. In turn, for most people, the heaviest and most awkward thing imaginable is 3 or 4 bags of groceries. While groceries can be quite heavy, there are much heavier things in need of conveyance; gardening supplies for one can be super heavy. Unfortunately my local Home Depot is not a bike friendly trip away. This was my first grocery run on the LHT and it worked out fine. Loaded up with a weeks' worth or food for the family (aka 500 apricot Clif Bars), the LHT had a little more twist in the ride than usual but nothing too bad.
Speaking of gardening this seasons first batch of worm compost tea was brewed up and applied to the vegetable garden this week.
