|Eric at the Panther City Fountain!|
We toured the various monuments and parks before heading to the 7th street area for Coffee at Starbucks.

The river was up and made some really pretty rapids!
This is perhaps the most beautiful street on my route!
I have found that taking pictures while riding a bicycle is difficult when you cannot see the view-finder.
It makes me ride slow enough to see the world!

So I am a bicycle commuter and commuting to my job as a railroad engineer requires that I carry enough gear, and food, for at least an overnight trip. Obviously I need a bike that can carry a ton of stuff; and answering the call is the “Kona UTE”! the Ute is a extremely functional bike. While not being the biggest or longest cargo bike offered it had all the things that I needed; bigger bag carrying capacity (a single grocery pannier on each side was not cutting it), upright position, loading deck, good brakes for rain, fenders, really low gearing, and the stiffness that only a purpose built cargo bike can deliver.
My Old Bike on a usual “at Night” Commute.
The Ute excels as a commuter and basic “grocery getter”. A majority of my commuting is done at night, so I am lucky enough to get to ride when the roads are emptier than the usual times that other people commute. So far this has been a good investment!
