pikapak carry strap for cycling

What’s the most awkward thing you’ve carried on a bicycle? Apart from child seats, few people here in the UK use bicycles as a way of carrying stuff. And that's an opportunity lost because elsewhere in the world, cyclists have become expert at balancing or lashing all manner of cargo to a standard bike.

The challenge is you never quite know when you'll need to carry something unusual. Enter the Pikapak carrying strap, an accessory to help cyclists tackle spontaneous cargo challenges.

The deceptively simple strap adjusts to accommodate a surprising array of items. And shoulder straps allow you to wear it comfortably like a backpack.
