Redfly Creations: Go-Everywhere Mini Messenger Bag My kiddos and I have really enjoyed biking on the trails here in our neighborhood. Sometimes we are biking for nearly an hour. During those longer rides I like to make sure I take my keys, phone, and some change with us. Not every pair of shorts or pants can accommodate all those items, so I decided I needed to make a solution.
