Celebrating Buy Local week '13 in Santa Monica

In honor of Santa Monica Buy Local Week I have a question.

If I want to: 

Leave my truck at home on the weekend.

Pick up a major appliance.

Get some exercise.

Support a local business in town.

Is all of this Bike Possible in one ride?

It is if you cargo bike it!

Thanks to Lane at Cetma Cargo
If you are in Los Angeles and would like us to stop by your business or event on a future episode of Bike Possible leave a comment or connect directly at jerold@bikelocally.com.

Now that you know you can move appliances by bike what else do you think is possible by bike?
