Cargo Bikes getting ink in the NYTimes

I have much to blog about-- three new bikes in our house (!), our bakfiets pirate ship makeover, New Haven's cycling celebration-- but wanted to share this link with my friends who haven't checked out the Sunday NYTimes yet: Hauling Cargo, No Car Necessary. The trikes that George makes are pretty darn fancy. Had to laugh when he said that "glamour moms" purchase and ride these cargo bikes. I am SO not a glamour mom, but now I have another reason to like Kate Winslet.

p.s. While getting my toenails painted today, I was perusing a certain celebrity magazine that showed a photo of Kate Winslet riding her fancy cargo trike. I had to track it down-- here it is. Interestingly, this website has blocked out the face of Winslet's son. I did note when looking at the magazine's photo that while he was wearing a helmet, it was unstrapped.... Just saying.

"Glamour moms" Not sure what that means, but it's interesting messaging.
