American media floods the airwaves with messages warning that the nation stands on the brink of environmental, obesity and fuel crises. Conscientious or health-savvy commuters can decide to take a bicycle to work and do their part to ease all three problems. While cycling to work definitely helps you consume less gas and slim your waistline, the ensuing sweat stains can be a major faux pas in the office. Fortunately, a couple of cargo options exist for cyclists who would rather carry a shirt to change into at work.
- Skill level:
Things you need
- Plastic bag
- Messenger bag or pannier
Roll the work shirt loosely. Avoid packing the shirt tightly, which can cause wrinkles.
Place the shirt in a plastic bag to protect against any accidental exposure to water. Use a bag large enough that you don't have to crush the shirt and possibly cause wrinkles. Seal the plastic bag.
Place the protected shirt inside a messenger bag or a pannier. Panniers are a type of protective sack that attaches to various sections of a bicycle. If you're carrying other items as well, place the shirt on top to avoid crushing it.
Close and secure the opening flap of the bag or pannier to keep the shirt from flying out while you're cycling. Sling a messenger bag over your shoulder or attach the pannier to the bicycle.
