Basket cases

The saying goes that necessity is the mother of all invention. If that is the case, then there are a lot of very inventive people living in Mui Wo, judging from the weird and wonderful bicycle baskets that I’ve been seeing around.

Most people around here have a baby seat at the back of their bike, for carrying tykes around.

But a lot of people also use their bikes for transporting goods, or at the very least, boxes of groceries from the supermarket to their homes up in the villages. And some people live quite far away — a good 15-20 minute bike ride into the hills — so when they go, they really need to stock up.

Anyway, here are some pictures of some of the more interesting bike baskets spotted today around Mui Wo.

I’m guessing this was custom made? Very metallic
A big plastic container and a bunjee cord — what else do you need? Also keeps out the rain!
Hey, whatever works, right?
