Finally the Bicycle Family ‘Demonstration‘ Cargo Bike is on the road! Saturday was an event to congratulate The Vancouver Foundation‘sGeneration Green grant recipients (such as Bicycle Family partner Shift cargo bike worker co-op) and a chance for me to show my cargo bike to Vancouver’s current bicycling Mayor, Gregor Robertson:

Here it is:
(I should have got a picture of him riding it. Next time...)
Mayor Robertson, Finn and I.

I’ve got the important features on this cargo bike done now. I still need to do the kids bench, seatbelts, step-in and the lighting… and all of the other little tweaks I want to do one day 😉 Basically, this platform will be a testbed of new design features and I will ride it around town. So, it will always be a work-in-progress and you can check it out as I ride around town or arrange a test ride to see how you like what I’m working on! Still in the R&D phase is a fully enclosed chain case and a rain cover for the kids (really wished I had that Saturday, some crazy hailstorms that day!)

Rainy Precious Cargo
The very first riders!

Over the next few weeks I’ll be detailing some photos of this bike in the Bikes for Sale section. I have another Human Powered Machines Frame in stock and ready for whatever colour powdercoat paint you need. I could build a box for it just like this demo one, like the HPM box designs, or custom. If you are interested in being an earlier adopter then please contact me!

Ready for you to test ride.

The Officially Bicycle Family launch and public display of the demo bike is coming soon. Stay tuned!
