Adelaide’s First Cargo Bike Party!!!!! – Sunday 25th May 2014

I can’t do the shopping using a bicycle, where will I put all the shopping to!!!!

What if we told you that bicycles now come with “cargo space”………

Introducing Cargo Bikes, with these you have a place to put all that “precious cargo”  be it, those bags (recycled and reusable of course) of shopping, or your living “precious cargo” (kids, dogs etc).

We stumbled across this great Blog written by a fellow “Adelaide Bakfiets Rider” who shows that doing things that “need” a car, (like dropping the kids off at school and even picking up some compost) can actually be done with one of these cargo bikes.

If you aren’t ready to take the plunge and buy one of these Cargo Bikes, there are other options like adding racks, panniers, and bike trailers, which will turn your existing bike into load carrying machine, but with the ability to turn it back into a “normal” bike with a few common household tools.

If you have never ridden (or seen) one of these then head along to Adelaide’s first Cargo Bike Party at the Old Tennis Courts on Anzac Highway next to the West Terrace Cemetery, in Adelaide on this Sunday, 25 May 2014, from 12pm to 4pm.

There will be an obstacle course challenge, load carrying challenges, speed races in each bike category and more. There will also be bikes there which you can test ride.
