You have a bike and are worried that you need to go grocery shopping on it. Then keep this worry aside because we have some tips that can make it comfortable to shop for your grocery even on your bike.
Get a basket and rear mount it
You can get some extra space by adding a basket to your bike. You could also get the basket insulated. You can add a backpack to it to carry some extra grocery items.
Buy limited and what you need
The bike gives you limited space and thus restricts your purchase to only what you need. Also, make sure that what you buy is healthy and leave the junk aside. Things that you can live without should be avoided. So buy some bananas and leave out the crisps.
Plan the recipes ahead
If you are going to shop for the full week then before you head to the grocery shop first make a list of what all you plan to prepare in the week. Then chart out the grocery list accordingly. This will help you in two ways. Firstly you will buy limited stuff and only what you plan to consume that week. Secondly, you will not buy things that would just be lying in your fridge and rot.
Stick to items that do not come with lots of packaging
Opt for the items that have less packaging. This will fit into your bag easily. The products that use less cardboard and plastic can be squeezed into your bag or your basket easily. This is also very environmentally friendly.
Grocery shopping is equally fun when you do it on a bike. Also when you drive to the store on your bike you can park much closer to the grocery store. Just make these little additions to your bike and you are all set to go. Buy bikes and parts and this will make it easy for you to go grocery shopping.
