How to carry your gym bag on your rear rack

I made a small tutorial about the hack I did for the safe transportation of my gym back on my bike's rear rack!

Hey, Thanks for sharing a helpful idea . Aren't there any gym bag carrier available in the market because building this rack from scratch wouldn't be feasible for me. But i would love to try it in near future.

Hey Donna, a rear basket or a front big rack could work nicely for you (or this one)! But this hack is really easy to make, you need just a plank (a piece of plywood a little bigger than your rack), some drilled holes on it, a rope and two pieces of a stick

I like it, thanks for posting. I ride with a pack but I'm getting a rack (thinking Bontrager BackRack Deluxe L) for the day a pack strap breaks (from all the **** I cram in there).

Oh Man, you 'll damage your back with all that weight. A rack will save you! Make a plank for it, it will help you strap bigger stuff on it
