Bike Crafts for National Bike Month

Make a Bike Pannier

A pannier can really make your rides much easier, especially in the summer months. There’s nothing like the sweaty sandwich that your backpack and shirt make against your skin, and adding some storage to your ride can make summer cycling much more pleasant. You can buy commuter packs at the store, but I love this super simple pannier idea that just uses a couple of buckets! Of course, you could make this much cuter by decorating the buckets with low VOC spray paint or a sharpie.
