Bungee straps

Recommended Posts

I'm wanting to ride to work tomorrow, trouble is I need to cart some kit along with me.

Bearing in mind i have no storage/luggage I was thinking of shoving a holdall on the back and bungeeing it on. How safe is this? Or would you not recommend? Any tips for ways of strapping it on good and proper?

Thanks :)

You should have some anchor points either side of ya seat cross over the straps to hold it down better and make sure they are tight. The bag will be behind you so it does not get too much wind on it, I have strapped tents and all sorts to me bike do find that a net helps if you carrying more than 1 item

I used 2 bungee cords to attach my backpack (smallish, about 30 litres) to my bike for the 90 mile ride home at the weekend. It didn't move an inch, but the cords were pretty tight.

as above just make sure it cant move sideways or back and forwards easily and make sure all straps etc are tucked away nicely secure as you do not want one wrapping itself into the wheel....

Small cargo nets are useful as well

if you need to strap things to your bike please do it properly, a friend of mine has just screwed her arm up after an off when her bag slipped off the seat and got chewed up by the rear wheel!

Not sure if the pic will work:
