One more reason for cyclists to love the Honda Fit

Thursday night is the POA Cycling Team’s first POA Cycling Summer Series race.  It is also the night of the beautiful redhead’s play rehearsal.  I’ve got to find something to do with the Things Three.

The Honda Fit comes to the rescue!  I really try to avoid driving the Suburban if I can help it.  It seems like a lot of truck just to haul a bicycle around.  My Honda Fit is set up just perfect for carrying my bike.

Unfortunately, add three kids to the mix and you have a space problem… or so you would think.  Tonight I went out to try an idea.  What if I could put the kids in the back seat and then load the bike in the back compartment?

It turns out that it works just great.  I even have some space left for the rest of my gear.  Now, I can head over to help set up for the event and drop the kids off with their grandparents on the way.  Hopefully, they’ll all be able to come over to the old Greenville Braves stadium for the race at 6 PM.

At least there is plenty of room in that back seat!  This might be the ticket for them to come up to Marion when they pick me up after I finish the Assault On Mount Mitchell.

Once again, I can’t say enough about my 2009 Honda Fit.  I used it going down the Charleston for the criterium races this weekend and it made a great platform for all the things I needed.  One of the best advantages?  I could park in places larger vehicles couldn’t.
