What's In My Bag // Cycling + ModCloth and Herschel Giveaway!
In a perfect world, I would carry as little as possible while on my bike. But the reality is, I normally need to take a few things with me, even if it is a little joy ride — you know, for safety's sake. For years I've been using a TimBuk2 messenger bag that I bought wayyy back when I worked for Apple. Recently, I posted about my desire to switch to a backpack — and ModCloth and Herschel sent me over this great Out In The Field backpack. The best part is that it looks like a knapsack but has the padded straps of a backpack. Best of both worlds!
Here's a peek at what's in my cycling bag.
Kryptonite U-Lock and keys
Knog Blinder 4 Cross bike lights (USB-rechargeable!)
Bern bicycle helmet
Bike tools and extra tube
Nova External iPhone Flash
Depending on where I'm going, I'll throw in my iPad or camera — which this bag is perfect for because it has a great laptop sleeve!
Now... onto the giveaway!
If you've been following on Instagram, you've seen me posting along with the #ModSummer Photo-A-Day Challenge. Today's the big day — post what's in your bag and you have a chance to win a $100 gift card and a Herschel bag. Header over to ModCloth's Instagram to see the details, lay your bag out neatly, and post your photo using the #modsummer and #wellpacked hashtags! Are you super stoked? I obviously love What's In My Bag posts (hence why I started doing my own series), so I'm excited to see how you all get involved in it now, too!
