the next time my children hava a soccer game, i will strap the soccer balls and 20 water bottles to my bike and ride 11 kms sharing the road with the friendly black suv vehicles, to the game field with my children.

I realize that TreyS is being sarcastic, but ...

  • a decent sized basket or rack could take a bag of soccer balls and 20 bottles of water with no problem
  • 11 km for a kids soccer game? That's the distance from Westdale to Eastgate. I'd hate to think that most people are going clear across town for anything but serious rep kids soccer

Undustrial's hit on a related pet peeve of mine. The short version: 35 years of having sport bikes and related equipment foisted on us when most of us just ride to school or to the store. I'll spare you the long version, since it comes with the frothing evangelical zeal of the recent convert :)

For those who might be interested, here is a thousand-word version.
