Wine bicycle tote solves all cycling hydration needs!

Have you ever been cycling home and thought, “Gee, I’d love to stop at that wine store but I have nowhere to put a bottle because I do not have a backpack or paniers or a basket or anything!” Well, this clever little gizmo available on Etsy will solve all your problems! And if you are commuting in New York City and a cab cuts you off, well, that wine bottle might just come in handy too.

  7. Looks great; might worry if you had to make a fast stop!

  8. It’s the perfect Hipster accessory!! Next they will have invented a combination Iphone 4/Ray-ban frame carrying case for the handlebars!

    According to Leslie W. Trebby, an associate attorney in the SLA’s Office of Counsel:

    I have reviewed the New York Alcoholic Beverage Control Law and the Rules of the New York State Liquor Authority and have found no provision that requires a grocery store licensed to sell beer (or a retail package liquor store) to place a purchased alcoholic beverage item into a bag

    In the absence of a provision in the ABC Law or in the Authority’s rules specifically addressing this issue, I am of the view that the seller is under no legal obligation to place the pu
