NEW: Bring Your Christmas Tree Home on Your Bike, Back

Tuesday, December 16, 2014

 

Forget picking up a Christmas tree with your car this year. Instead, strap the tree to your back and ride home on your bike, according to a City Lab article

City Lab urges cyclists to be adventurous and get a real tree, and then provides a list of how to successfully ride your bike with a Christmas tree bungee-corded to your back. The author of the article included photos from her own adventure of biking home a Christmas tree.

To start off, make sure you have the necessary supplies--namely bungee cords--and your bike is prepped to for the trip. After all, the article says a tow truck may not have room for you and your Christmas tree inside the cab. Also, the article says make sure to pick a jacket you don't mind getting pitch all over the back of. 

Once at the lot, the article suggested picking a lighter tree, such as a Douglas fir. Ask someone at the lot to shrink wrap your tree and help position you for the trek home. 

Riding home with tree on your back calls for extra caution and awareness, the article reminded cyclists. However, it said be sure to celebrate accomplishing the feat once you make it home.

Check out the article for the full list.
