I present to you photos from the New Haven area's first ever "TOUCH-A-CARGO-BIKE!" event:
What an amazing time we had! We were thrilled with the cargo bikes represented: multiple Xtracycles, two Madsens, a Yuba Mundo, two different cargo trikes, a family tandem, etc. We had back and front-mounted child carrier seats and some bike trailers. Lots of people stopped by to test out the bikes and talk family bicycling and cargo bikes.
It was an affirming day for those of us who have been riding with our families. Interest is high and true community is forming. A highlight -- riding to and from the park with other cargo bicycling families as we had a line of seven cargo bikes cruising across town. Thinking back to our first solo days out on the streets with our bakfiets nearly three years ago, this felt BIG.
