I tried to find the best way to carry stuff on your bike commute. Here’s what I found

Getting to work on a bike is only half the job. The tough part is figuring out how to get all of your stuff there too. Your lunchbag, your coffee, your hand sanitizer (c’mon, it’s still Covid times), how do you carry it? I decided to test four of the most popular methods to determine the most efficient and simple. I tested:

1:08 Panniers (or saddlebags)
3:33 Basket
6:11 Milk Crate
8:42 Backpack
10:55 My favourite

Nice panniers, right? They were given to me to test by  @Vincita  — thanks to them. If you like the look of it, you can check it out here.
