A handlebar bag for your bike can be a great alternative to having a basket affixed at the front, although this is also an option for people who want the classic bike storage option onboard. Modern handlebar baskets let you avoid the perils of the elements with waterproof fabric and padded interiors to stop your shopping getting wet in a sudden shower.

This is a nice touch and these smaller handlebar bags can be particularly kind to the bank balance.
