I've toyed with the idea of buying one of those baby wagons for my bike to bring back groceries and to help lug stuff around on other errands. I've even checked out luggage racks and panier bags, though they don't have quite the volume the baby wagons have. Jensonusa.com has all kinds of baskets and paniers that might do the trick for you, if you haven't looked there yet.
Also good to hear that riding has helped your gout. I think a lot of times a little bit of exercise is all we need for what ails us -- it's cheaper and can sometimes be a more effective treatment than popping pills. Hope it continues to work out for you.
Thanks! I'm finding that as we get older, we need (absolutely need) to get exercise more than ever. Hitting the gym and cycling along with some otc supplements is doing me wonders.
I'm trying to get my wife to buy in. It's so unfortunate that she hates bikes.
Oh... and forget the basket, I just realized that I could be hauling groceries in the kiddie trailer that I've had forever. This will be the last season that my youngest will fit in it, so I'll have to find new uses for it.
