I've taken up commuting by bicycle again and wonder how you carry Mr Bento with you?

Smallish backpack works best!

I just bought a bike today, as a matter of fact (my first!), with a big wicker basket on front. I plan to just strap him down and tell him to shut up and hang on.

I ride a motorcycle, racey style, but I use a bungie net to strap the Bento down, on it's side, to the back of the bike. I've only had minor drips from various liquids.

I commute with a hydration pack. The style I use has a nice "pocket" for the water bladder. The commute is not too long so I lose the 100oz of water and the Bento fits very nicely into the pocket. The darn pocket is insulated too it actually helps keep it hot or cold. Of course it only stays as upright as I do =). Good luck and keep the rubber side down!
email me if you have any questions
hwianshirt08204@yahoo.com just put mr bento or cycling in the topic.

My Mr. Bento came with a nylon shoulder bag... I just carry it in that.

Thanks for the replies. Our bike room completion got delayed so I haven't ridden yet. It is supposed to be ready to use on Monday. Mo Money Mandy - I have pretty much decided on the panniers for MrBento since the lockers in our bike room will be day use only so I will need to haul stuff back and forth - which panniers did you get?

I use a square-shaped, fold-able, removable bag from Bike Pro USA that I've had for ten years. It clips onto the rear rack, and has a shoulder strap for carrying it. Since I'm packing my street clothes with Mr B, he's nicely crammed and cushioned, so no tipping over! Good luck commuting - I just started this summer, and I'm loving it.
