An Xtracycle is very practical!

This morning Priscilla wanted to ride her bike to work, but knowing that our daughter needed to be picked up after school, she went opted to ride the Xtracycle since she can carry extra passengers as well as bags and what not.

Before she left, I busted out the camera and snapped a few shots of her getting ready to go. I don’t know if you noticed, but I’m running a steel rigid fork now. I used to have a 100mm Marzocchi fork since I would occasionally use the Xtracycle as a mountain bike. But since the beast hasn’t seen much dirt, I figured the new fork would be a better fit for the bike.

I filled up her commuter mug and had it ready for her to take to work.

Got the bags ready to go.

Putting the helmet on.

And she’s off to work!

I loved this photo…in a sea of cars, she’s the only bike on the road…sad, but cool in its own way.

I had to throw this one in…
