Cargo Bike Spotlight: New York Times hails the cargo revolution

My mother excitedly shared this article titled “Families Ditch Cars For Cargo Bikes” with me this morning. It’s true, a year ago I could see someone zip by on a Bullitt and name names. Now, there are so many of us out here! And growing. I myself can’t decided if I love the Yuba Mundo more or the Bullitt because they are different bikes for different lifestyles and styles of ride. Honestly, I’m just glad a publication took the time to unpack the difference between a longtail and a bakfiet. It’s surprisingly confusing when you explain it to people. I also have to appreciate the fact that this is one of the few non bike-centric publication to feature Cetma Cargo. Their bikes are absolutely gorgeous. Personally, they don’t make a lot of sense for a courier. However if I were a suburban cargo mom, I would be sold!

Here’s an except from the article

“These days, cargo bikes are no longer a novelty: They are cropping up not just in the expected West Coast enclaves like Seattle, Portland and the Bay Area, but in cities like New Haven, Tucson and Dallas. “It used to be that if I saw somebody in Boston on a cargo bike, I probably knew them and probably helped them buy their bicycle,” said Nathan Vierling-Claassen, who has ridden a cargo bike since 2008. “Now that’s no longer the case.”
