#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.

Keep 'em rolling,

Kent, I'll be hauling bike maps and literature to a bicycle event tomorrow on behalf of Fairfax Advocates for Better Bicycling, my local advocacy organization. I think it's only about 20lbs, though. My Torker Cargo T will be carrying the load.

Hi, Kent, I noticed a typo about the US Bike Routes on the Adventure Cycling site. Do you happen to know to whom we would send that info at Adventure Cycling?

Hi Gene,

Ginny Sullivan (gsullivan at adventurecycling dot org) is the brains behind the U.S. Bike Routes. She can fix anything.
