|Shed optimized for bikes|
So far, this has worked! Putting the bikes up front and the tools in the back (and getting rid of a lot of junk) enabled me casually to bicycle places I would otherwise have walked or driven. It's not even that inconvenient for using the tools; it's just not that hard to lean over a bike and grab the shovel. Certainly that's easier than moving all my tools or trying to lift my bike over them!
One example of this working is today. Today The Lovely Wife was canning tomatoes, which is a really great thing to do, but it was displacing our dinner preparations. We decided on the spur of the moment that I would go get takeout. I washed up from gardening, and instead of hopping in my car, rolled my bike from the shed.

This fit in week's Change the World Wednesday Challenge:
This week replace at least one car trip with a bicycle or walking trip.If you find yourself not biking as much as you'd like, consider whether part of the problem has to do with how you park your bike. If it's just as easy to grab your bike as your car keys, you may be on your way!
