Once carried a chainsaw on the back of a bike... but, that looks more like a mop.  26

It's your new broomstick?

I saw a woman carrying a swivel chair on her Cannondale MTB on the way home. She'd strapped the seat cushion onto the side of the carrier so that the rotating base was sticking out. It looked kind of odd and I did wonder if she'd bashed it off anything on the way.

When I lived in Nigeria I regularly saw people carrying strange things on bicycles. As I sat sinking a beer in a roadside bar, one guy pedalled slowly past with a tree on his head on one occasion. And no, I wasn't drunk.

We also moved house by bicycle, balancing our kitchen table across my mate's bike and having placed all our furniture (coffee table, beds and living room chairs, paraffin cooker and all the other smaller bits and pieces) on top of the table. There were four of us supporting the kitchen table and one steering the bicycle handlebars and we moved everything in just three loads.

Good work. Did you do that move over here or in Nigeria?

Dave Holladay, (one of the unsung heroes of cycling) once told me how he'd moved a wardrobe on a Brompton.

Is it one of those 'invisible dog' leads?

Clue - I could have ridden it home in a pythonesque manner.
