I pull up to the Biking Lawyer’s office and there are 5-6 other cyclists there. Outside volunteers are carrying out boxes of produce. Some are emptying the boxes into panniers, others are putting them on racks strapped down with bungee cords. I have signed up to bring five boxes with me and am disappointed when the first box comes out. I can’t even get it through the opening in the top of the trailer. But not to worry – it turns out that inside the box are plastic bags full of produce. I take the bags out and stack them inside, and five fit perfectly.
