Cargo Bikes and Trailer Cycles UNITE!

This is what it could be like for families on the North Portland Willamette Greenway! I don’t yet know where this is shot, but the bikes were made in Eugene, Oregon, USA.

One Response to Cargo Bikes and Trailer Cycles UNITE!

    Lucky dog…

    Mine used to get taken around Davis in a rear trailer, but he didn’t like it. Used to strain against the leash/restraint and bark at anyone I passed. Keeping one’s precious cargo up front seems like such a good idea.

    I’m wondering if Angela and Libby would experience their commute differently with such a set up, or if people’s negative perception is based more on seeing children on bicycles outside of suburban cul-de-sacs. What is the usual reaction you get from people when you and the kids are our out with the Bakfiets?

    I know that using a trailer can be worrisome because I don’t see where it is exactly and worry that I am not positioning myself well (for the safety of who/whatever I’m towing). If only cargo-up-front options were as accessible (in terms of price) as trailers (got mine on craigslist for about $50).
