Last Sunday, I attended a gathering for local women outside the bicycle community with common work/art interests. At the end of it, a few items including some sweet pieces of art were raffled and I, was the lucky winner of a beautiful framed photograph by Julie Michelle, also part of the awesome San Francisco collective: CaliberSF. She was the organizer of such inspirational meeting of minds.
The frame was safely transported via the Frenchie. I wrapped my coat around it and threw it in my basket, carried around a few districts, got taken out for Piccino pizza in the dogpatch (yes!!) and finally made to my casagrosa (casa+meligrosa). Super cool.
I honestly felt quite confident that I would be able to carry a glass-like object in my basket and not brake it. I'm terrible with things like that, but I'm also very cautious when I really don't feel like messing up, which I was capable of doing -especially- on a Sunday afternoon.
Have you ever been nervous of carrying any specific load in your basket or bags, backpacks for carrying specific items? I don't think I would carry anylarger piece of glass with me around, but this size was manageable and didn't give me a problem carrying it via my beloved bicycle's basket.
