Bike Equipment Picked

I went over the options with Brian for carrying both his trumpet and his books on his bike. I told him that there were cool gig bags that wouldn't offer as much protection to the trumpet, but that he could wear on his back. That would mean carrying his books on the bike rack though. I told him that there were also fancy bags that hang off the bike rack that would work for books and look pretty cool.

And then I told him that we could just get those collapsible baskets that go on the back of your bike. Like these:

He said, "Well, if I had those I could use them to take all my stuff when I wanted to go to a friend's house too, right?"
It really is wonderful to have a kid who is not concerned about being cool. This really is the least expensive and most versatile option. He can dump his book bag in one basket and his trumpet in the other. We may need to get one or two of the cargo nets they sell to go with them.
So thank you to Sarsmile for the suggestion.
Tomorrow we are going to take the bus together to the school to get him registered. We will see how we do just walking. It is a little risky because I really don't know how long it will take us to get registered, but I think we will be okay.
