Unique Commute

As I began my day Monday morning near the Geneva Golf Club, I noticed Mark Meier using his bicycle to trailer a canoe along South Street. 

I had never seen anything like this before. Meier's cart and homemade hitch traveled effortlessly behind his bicycle. 

After stopping him to ask about his unique transportation, he said he this is normal commute to work. He rides his bike to the river and canoes the rest of the way. "It's kind of like being retired and working at the same time," he said.
