We pedaled up to the local tree lot over the weekend and picked up our Christmas tree. Although the novelty of hauling a large tree by bike has faded a bit, it was still pretty satisfying to pull up to the tree lot on our bikes, park right in front, choose our 6′ Noble fir, strap it to Tim’s bike with very little effort, and pedal home. No drama, no fuss, no big deal.
Well, I shouldn’t say no big deal. The ride home was a bit hairy–the combination of icy roads and aggressive Sunday drivers made the ride home a little less carefree than we’d hoped.
We made it home without incident and still think that all in all Xtracycle–tree–transport is the way to go.
