DIY – Drink and Party by making yourself a Bike Cooler!

Recently I’ve noticed a large number of people going through the beaches in San Francisco with backpacks and other junk on their bikes.  I think they were doing some kind of California coastal ride but here’s a great way to add a bike cooler to your bike in case do something similar.

Although I hate to do it, I must admit I do flip off many drivers as some drivers in San Francisco just need to be flipped off.  (Hey, you can’t help it if you live in a metropolitan area.  It’s not my fault that the person driving in front of me almost killed me and drove me off the road by cutting me off!)

Passenger “moons” Speeding Camera
