My friend and co-worker Jeff, flew out to Chicago this past week from our California office. When Friday rolled around, we all headed to the beach for our summer office party. Jeff and I were trying to figure out how we could both go from the office to the beach and then to my house (he was staying with us for the weekend, and I was riding my bike) without having to resort to a cab or go back to the office or his hotel for his luggage. Divvy Bikes to the rescue!
- He took a Divvy bike from near our office in the loop (while I rode on my Omafiets) up to the station at Michigan Ave & Lake Shore Drive.
- After the party, he took another Divvy bike from that same bike station near the lakefront, and rode to one near our house in the West Town area.
AND – his carry-on luggage fit on the front rack of the Divvy!
There was an additional bonus too. As we walked home from the Divvy station, we strolled by a wine shop, which prompted my friend to state “Oh, I need to buy some wine for you”. So we made an easy quick stop for a few bottles of wine on the way home. Can’t go wrong with that.
So if you’ve been wondering about what you can fit in that front rack of a Divvy bike, now you know.
