When you arrive, where do you park your bike in relation to picking up bag and finding a camping spot?
Is following scenario likely:
arrive - plonk bike just outside heavy action near baggage trucks - pick up bag - walk to bike - put bag on rear rack - walk to camping spot
I was thinking of taking my backpack.
In that case I can even ride.
Which reminds me of this guy I saw cycling on the path the other day: bulging rear panniers (can't remember front ones) and a HUGE backpack, the backpack alone would be 20+ unless filled with feathers. I assumed he was moving house.
And now the really weird thing: I saw him again, a couple of days later, same path, same direction, same huge black bags. Must be moving a large household then.
