For the eco-minded shoppers out there, cycling to the supermarket can be a great alternative to driving. The only problem is how to make it back with all your shopping?
Berto Aussems has created a sturdy and lightweight collapsable shopping cart that fits on the back of a standard bike rack.
Sitting safely on the back of your bike, the shopping cart won’t get in your way while you ride. Once you get to the store, it’s easy to unfold and roll around. Getting it back on the bike when it’s full functions in exactly the same way as removing it when it is empty.
Aussems suggests an alternative use as well:
Besides a shopping cart, it can also be used as a child stroller with room to store things.
Even with the most basic of DIY skills, and the right tools, it’s possible to follow Aussem’s instructions using everyday materials.
So, if you’ve been jumping in the car to go to the shops because you haven’t been able to find an effective way to do it on your bike yet – this could be the answer.
