I’m teaching a couple of silk-screening workshops to grade 4s this week at a school out in Point Grey on the west side of Vancouver. Thing is, I need to take several screens, silk-screen ink, squeegees and various other supplies. That’s where the trusty cargo bike comes in. I loaded it up with my supplies and it didn’t even look or feel full. This bike has seen almost everything: full-size ironing boards, coolers, ladders, groceries, camping equipment and passengers. It gets a ton of use in our house, and I highly recommend a long-tail bike for cycling trips or to anyone who likes to carry stuff on their bike on a regular basis. Some cities have cargo bike-share programs if you’re not into figuring out how to store another bike.
