Pineapple farmer

Farmer master the art of balancing more than 100 pineapples on bicycles as they transport them to a market. The convoy of workers form long queues as they each push a bicycle stacked with the fruit. A basket filled with pineapples is placed on either side of the bikes and they are strapped in with rope to prevent any of them falling out. As many as 120 pineapples can be transported like this, however the farmers are unable to ride the bicycles because their load is so large and instead push them while walking.
