    Default What is this thing?

    I saw this piece of leather attached to a bike parked at the Clarendon metro. What is it?

    It's a carrying handle. Wait, it's on a bike. I meant portage handle.

    Maybe a collar to go for a walk?

    I've never used it to "portage" my bike so I might try sewing a triangular tool bag for that spot. Probably someone in Portland sells one already.

    I could have used something like this recently when I was trying to portage across the stepping stones along FMR. I had to turn back because I couldn't get a good grip on my bike and felt insecure walking in slippery bike shoes.

    I'm disappointed they don't carry a vegan model.
