Carry Freedom the default option in hilly Edinburgh
I’ve now saved 60% of the (purchase + maintenance) cost of my Carry-Freedom Y-Frame trailer as measured by mileage saved on the car!
We’re almost finished with the new kitchen fitting, so that means there’s a load of odds-and-ends to dispose of.
I’m now so used to using the Carry Freedom that it seems like a funny idea to put this sort of thing in the back of our estate. It makes you realise how silly the built-in assumption is that you can’t transport heavy or bulky goods on your bike (in hilly Edinburgh too).
It’s totally routine.
I especially enjoyed this load because, while drivers can still claim not to see groups of cyclists who “came out of nowhere” on the road, if you have a little bit of scrap metal on your offside, everyone transforms their behaviour…
