My bike is in the shop today, so I borrowed this bucket bike and rode my daughter to school this morning. It's a loner that is being used by my neighbor until she gets her new xtra-cycle edgerunner. The owners are in no rush to have it back and we are delighted to use it until we get our bikes back. I love the idea of having a loner bike that travels from family to family so everyone can get in on the cargo bike action. This was my first time riding another cargo bike and I felt powerful and free. It was like riding a new bike all over again. What a fun way to feel strong, a bit awkward, and sometimes silly all at the same time! If you are curious how I ever got into biking with my kids, feel free to read my recent article at ParentMap and get in touch with me to test ride a cargo bike!
