A friend spotted this very handy "perfect picnic bike" on Facebook, so I thought I'd share.

Just imagine pedaling to your next picnic (and that season is nearly upon us!) with all the supplies you need neatly stored away inside your bike frame.

That's the way the folks at Plano Cycling & Fitness roll. And it looks like all you really need is some decent carpentry skills and a little imagination to make one of your own.

With this sweet custom bike there's even a handy flip out table for more sophisticated dining than you can get from the usual sandy-covered picnic blanket. Add a cooler bag to the luggage rack behind your seat and a chilled drink to the cup holder on the handlebars and you're good to go.
