The weather this week has been outstanding! Fortunately, I was able to get out for a few days on a camping ride. The picture below is a praying mantis that dropped into my campsite along the Des Moines River. The other set of pictures show how you can convert your Alyce bags into grocery-getter panniers. This allows you to over pack them with goodies from the market. Of course, you don’t really need to neatly fold and bungee the bag tops, but it does make it look a little tidier.
