Test ride for the Concerts on the Square folding chair storage system

Test Ride for the Concerts on the Square Folding Chair Storage System
It works, and the chair didn't fall off: Biking to the Concerts on the Square is a great way to beat the traffic and the parking hassles (and take advantage of the Monona Terrace bike elevator). But slinging a folding chair over your shoulder can make for a less than optimal ride. We finally put some luggage racks on the back of our bikes. Now we can lash the chairs to the rack with room for a pannier full of picnic stuff. I tested a lashing system this afternoon that seems simple but functional, easy enough to undo and redo when we're in a hurry to beat the crowd afterwards. Rode it around a bit and it didn't budge. The series of six weekly concerts starts June 24. We're ready!

Excellent idea. Now, if we could all follow the same procedure for the fireworks at Warner Park, and at the same time have the city close one street to just bicycle traffic that evening, we are on the way to sanity.
