There are plenty of reasons to switch out a car for a cargo bike. Just ask Liz Canning, the filmmaker of “Less Car More Go”, a documentary on the history and future of the cargo bike movement. But this isn’t just any documentary. This one has 100 co-directors. Yeah you read that right. 100 cargo-cyclists collaborated by taking videos of how cargo bikes changed their lives.
So what exactly are some of the great things about cargo bikes?
- They’re green! There’s nothing harmful to the environment about pedal power.
- They’re great for families. When a traditional bicycle just doesn’t cut it, cargo bikes are great for lending an extra hand.
- They create community. What better way to make friends and create memories with family than by giving them a ride behind your bike?
- Benefits. Cargo bikes come with a lot of benefits—you don’t necessarily need a car to get around anymore and that can make your community a safer place. And let’s not forget the workout you’ll be getting in everyday!
The past present and future of the cargo bike is looking bright!
