Bicycling in and around Atlanta.

Can you take it with you?

This weekend involved a run to costco. I've made no secret of my desire for an Xtracycle but even my old commuter managed this impressive haul:

A huge thing of toilet paper
A dozen a half of eggs
Two loaves of bread
6 pounds of ground beef
4 pounds of chicken
and a pack of apples

Not bad. But with an Xtracycle I could have taken even more.

Great idea for a post. Photos would be great. I need to list out my grocery runs - especially now that I've got the big pannier.

Where is the Costco you go to?

Adjacent to Cumberland Mall which is less than 3 miles from my home. Very convenient. Now if I could just figure out how to transport big bags of dog food.

I've been thinking hard about an Xtracycle or Big Dummy this week too. It would make those larger grocery runs _much_ easier.

Wow! A warehouse club sized case of T.P.? I agree with Jett - photos would be great.

A costco shopping trip is a bit beyond my comfort level with cargo, at least for now. I'll keep practicing with grocery store trips, and think about trying it after getting a rack installed on the back.
