2 back strap carry bag

    Can anyone suggest one. I don't have a car so will be cycling to the local golf club so I need a carry bag with 2 back straps. I'm looking for one that's affordable, durable and comfy.

    You're best off getting a pencil bag if you are cycling, they have two straps but no stand.

    You'd be insane to cycle with golf clubs on your back. The weight could easily transfer to one side and throw you off.

    A lad i used to play with had a caddy car with an adapter that you could attach to his bike. It reminded me a bit of the contraption Hannibal Lecter was wheeled around in and looked odd on the course. But I'd suggest looking for that rather than attempt to cycle with clubs on your back!

    there is a reason you never see anyone doing this

    Way too unstable and not secure at all

    see if the club have a storage area to leave the clubs at and cycle up and collect.

    Any lightweight bag with headcover should be fine. Take your bike to the store when purchasing if you're planning to buy new? Flip-out legs are nice when playing but could be annoying on a bike (you could have a bungee that straps these back and away from you when on the bike though) Most people I've seen cycling with clubs have held the bag to the side while cycling (a la single strap type bag) rather than across their back. A headcover for the bag is absolutely essential so you don't need to worry about clubs falling out. Secondhand carry bags can be picked up pretty cheap check out adverts for this
