In Praise of Cargo Bikes

This post is really in response to this article I came across at the Grist website. The catchy title of the article is initially drew my attention: Tricked-out cargo bikes give SUVs a run for their money. It's a good article and basically just another thing to stroke your ego as a cargo cyclist. If that isn't enough and you need even more positive reinforcement I encourage you to watch the short slide-show of cargo bikes below (never mind the hokey music). I really feel cargo bikes are the answer to many of our current problems.And yes, I know I'm mostly preaching to the choir by posting these sentiments on a blog which largely centers on bike riding. None-the-less, it's good to feel good about riding a 7ft bike now and again.

Your blog has been an inspiration. I just received my new Mundo V3 this past week and I love it.

That is excellent!

If you feel inclined to send a photo or two I'd love to post them.

Ride.

Will do. FYI, we are practically neighbours. I am in St. Catharines.

Yes that does make us almost neighbors. I've been to St. Catharines a few times, but not in a while. I do get up to Toronto 2 or 3 times a year. I sold my v1 Mundo to a guy in Toronto.
