1. A local family emailed me about their search for their perfect family cargo bike. They will be coming over this weekend to test out our two longtails, the Xtracycle Radish and the Yuba Mundo.
3. My friend V called me at work to ask a question about our Xtra since they had just purchased a new Xtracycle Radish to go along with their Madsen. Knowing other families with multiple cargo bikes makes me feel less nutty about our bike fleet. I look forward to comparing the new version of the Radish to ours. I already know that I am envious of the lower top tube...
4. Anne from CarFree Days sent me this photo. So cool to think of my handmade t-shirt participating in this rockin' Bike-to-School event in Seattle. 185+ riders and doughnuts. Amazing. It's time to do some family-bike organizing locally. See more photos from the event here.
5. The sun came out this afternoon and we headed out on the bikes for a spring Friday evening loop: dessert first at Ashley's, then off to Modern to pick up the boys' pizza (or is that apizza?), a stop at Caffe Bravo for some eggplant rollatini for the grown-ups, and finally, a swing by The Wine Thief. It was one of those evenings that just makes us so happy to live where we do.
Now that we've pretty much decided to keep the bakfiets, we've been taking it out more and more. If we ride with just one kid in it (given how big they've all grown), it works out great and there's still plenty o' room for our purchases. The boys love riding in the box bike and we are constantly overseeing negotiations as to whose turn it is to hang in the baks.
