Splendid Bicycles for Cargo and Kids (238)

PM238_640Picture a sofa perched on a bicycle for its move across town! That’s how Portlanders Joel and Barb Grover transport items too big or awkward for a car. More and more folks in bicycle-friendly terrain are using cargo bikes for their in-town transportation needs — carrying kids, groceries, purchases and goods for market. Creative cycle design is thriving, as Joel shows in numerous cargo cycle models, and local builder Joseph Ahearne shows with his Cycle Truck. Take a test spin with Janaia, who is having too much fun in a box-fronted tricycle and learning how to steer a “long tail.” Episode 238. [splendidcycles.com, ahearnecycles.com]
