How to carry your gym bag on your rear rack

Hello there!

After 6 months since the last time I wrote a blog post, I felt it was time to sit and write a post about something. The mighty bike is still a very important aspect of my life (almost 12 years on the streets!) and I always have new ideas or bike trips or thoughts to write about. Hopefully, this will last for a very long time!

So, here in the big city, I have to cover a decent distance 3 times a week while carrying a bag full of Judo gear .  I don’t like to carry the bag on my back and having it strapped on the rack is not safe (one time it fell off behind me and I didn’t realize it until I was back home – I had to go all the way back looking for it ). So, I experimented a bit and found a very easy and safe way to secure it on the rack. It works great with all kinds of Gym kind of bags.

  • You ‘ll need:
  •  A plank of wood (a bit bigger than your rack)
  • Wire
  • Polyester Rope
  • Wooden stick
  • Drill

    Nice to see this update the your earlier post “The plank” and again very practical, I do not use my bicycle rack too much, but when I use it I notice it is too narrow, so I should try something like this.

    Interesting city, I read there was snow in Athens recently…

    Yes, … hopefully, this will last for a very long time!

      Hello Mike! Nice to see you are still around 🙂
      Yes, it is very useful! It’s truly practical. I ‘d definitely recommend making a plank. But I use the rack almost every day, maybe it’s not very useful to you.

      Athens is interesting indeed. It’s really chaotic, dirty and loud but it never sleeps. It’s difficult to find a more crazy city in Europe I think. If you ever decide to visit it, I will gladly show you around!

      And yes, we had snow (very rare)! Look my neighbourhood >>

    Stumbled across bicyclosis again…. love the ideas this one in particular is awesome. So simple and that’s the best thing about any design
