Cargo biking for the coolest of the cool

Cargo bikes aren't just for mom's and their babies. As I find my way down the rabbit hole of Googling cargo bike a whim came over me to search "cargo bike wheelie". Here is proof that cargo bikes are for athletes with a sense of urban cool can rock a longjohn front loader too.

An just so you don't think he's the only one. Here a guy captured by the folks at sustainaburbia.
See what happens when you let dad get on the cargo bike!

Retailers ride the CicLAvia wave to the beach



Venice Blvd. retailers get ready for the wave on consumers flooding you street this morning. CicLAvia will be leading a sea of cyclists your way. Best of all there will no cars obstructing your access to them. From 10 am to 3 pm you can reach out and touch potential shoppers as the cycle past you store on their way to the beach.


Traveling by bike makes you hungry. Since the streets will be closed to cars plan on tons of kids with their parents eager to explore. The release of endorphins from the exercise will create a light happy mood, ideal for trying something new.

As  local retailer, how would use this opportunity to introduce yourself to 10,0000 new potential customers?
