When thinking of commuting or getting around with your bicycle and lugging extra cargo there are many choices. Of course it depends on what you are doing. Are you going to the supermarket or someplace else where you will need more than a basket off the handlebars. Some of the choices available are a backpack or even panniers (bags on the side of the rear or front wheel).

The next step would be to have a much more sturdy type rack or support behind you and that’s where the Xtracycle comes in.  Take a look at this website and see what is actually out there! Holy cow! you can carry home all your groceries from Costco or lumber from a hardware store.
