|It’s as crazy as it looks, and
I’m sitting on the beach in Lajoya California as a I write this. It’s a comfortable 18° Celsius and I’m missing my bike. I can always rent something down here, but the road I just did begs a bike I’m familiar with; I was watching the guys in their worn leathers and sports bikes with envy.
The road to the Palomar observatory is a knee down roller coaster that takes you five thousand feet up to one of the biggest mirrors in the world. It’s a road that makes me wish my Ninja was here instead of a rental bike that doesn’t feel familiar and is, quite frankly, designed for looks rather than athletics; virtually all rental choices are cruiser or retro based.
After watching Interstellar I started reading about tesseracts and multi-dimensional mechanics. The first thing I’d create with my new-found multi-dimensional engineering skills would be the Bike Bag™! You press the zipper up against a wall and roll your bike and gear in.
|The idea’s been around for a while.|
Once you zip it up you can roll up the zipper and put it in your pocket. When you get where you’re going you put the zipper up on a wall again and when you unzip it there is your bike and gear ready to go. A carry on bag and an airline ticket and I’d be ready to ride pretty much anywhere I landed.
