It's that time of year. For a lot of different things. We can certainly question the the all-powerful consumerism that is ever-present in our society, but that may be subject matter for another blog.
The fact is, people have stuff to buy in December. Lots of stuff. Christmas trees are among that stuff and over at Copenhagenize.com you can see how THAT gets done by bicycle. Then there are presents, food, you name it. It all needs to be transported around. From A to B and on to C. In Copenhagen, a lot of that is done by bicycle, too.
The weather doesn't always work with you when you cast yourself headlong into the shopping frenzy, but a bicycle gets the job done.
Bicycle baskets serve their purpose on shopping expeditions.
Although a strong shoulder is functional as well.
A kids seat provides extra load capacity for the bigger stuff you need to get home.
The strap on the kids seats comes in handy, too. Then there is the back rack found on virtually every bicycle. That's what it's there for.
You don't always need to ride the bicycle when hungry guests are on the way,
Front racks are booming in popularity, meaning bigger stuff is coming home with you on your bicycle.
You get to contemplate your purchase all the way home, which may be a good or a bad thing.
You can, of course, plan early for the holiday season, starting your shopping in the summer.
