#30DaysofBiking: Urbana, Hauler of Maps
I had a U.S. Bike Routes meeting this afternoon with my friends Barb and Louise at the Bicycle Alliance in Seattle so I rode the Urbana into Seattle. One of the things I do in my various bike advocate roles is give various people King County bike maps, so I took advantage of the hauling capacity of the Urbana to lug 300 bike maps back to Issaquah. When I got home, I weighed the two boxes. It turns out 300 bike maps weigh about 34 pounds. I guess that explains why it took longer to get back to Issaquah than it did to ride to Seattle.
