    Default Transporting KBs by bike!!

    Mostly reader here. With spring and summer coming up in Europe, I'm getting the urge to train outside, but the local parks are a few km away. Does anybody on here have good suggestions/experience with transporting two KBs on their bike? I'm sure I can make it somehow, but I'd be happy to be certain that my KBs won't drop onto the street somehow during transport.
    Taking into account what sub I'm in, I guess KB carries would be an option, but I'm open to real suggestions. =)

    I think that transporting kbs by bicycle might be risky. But, maybe if you towed a small wagon with your bike (like the RADIO FLYER wagon we have in the U.S.) - and put the kbs in the wagon - that might work....Dennis

    There's a wide variety of trailers for bicycles available. I've seen some you could transport a gym's worth of kb's with though just pulling it would be a good workout in itself. Not too tough to build your own though by the time you source wheels and axle(s) you might be spending nearly as much as just buying ready made

    Depending how heavy the kettlebells are, you could maybe just do it one at a time in a bag strapped to your bike. Like when someone might not to wear one when they're riding, in case they fall or have to jump off. Then you could leave them there (ex: burying them by putting them in a garbage bag under some dirt & leaves).

    "Burying them in a garbage bag under some dirt and leaves". I am sorry but I had to laugh at that one! Best way is to just do your kettlebell program at home. Unless you have a motor vehicle to get to the park just stay at home. There are "kettlebell backpacks" you can purchase on internet sites. They are essentially back packs for man-transport of your kettlebells....Dennis

    Do you have a front or back yard? Why do you have to go to a park a few km away?

    What's so funny about that? It's a good idea! Seriously, if you put them somewhere so someone doesn't just grab them figuring that the person that owned them is looking to get rid of them & not go through the trouble of maybe selling them, it would probably work very well.

    Kettlebells at least for me are expensive. Getting into the habit of hiding/burying them on other peoples property could mean that ultimately you will lose them. IMHO its not worth the risk. But also consider the park is not my property. Its not for me to leave my kettlebells or any other such stuff on other peoples property. Even if the property is city owned. Burying my kettlebells in the park conjours up an image of me in a squirrel costume burying my nuts. Buck teeth included...heheh!!...Dennis

    I've buried my nuts on occasion. It hurts!

    Meh- it doesn't hurt anyone & there's no proof they're mine. "Oh, I just found them there- they were buried, but part was showing through the bag."
