Did you know that people carry their kids, friends, spouses, and parents on bikes?
I carried my first passenger in April 2010 on my trip to Portland. I test rode a Yuba Mundo fromÂ Joe Bike in the SE Hawthorne neighborhood. But this photo shows a friend carrying ME on the bike.
I really want to carry someone. I told my sister that when I get a new cargo bike this year (either the Yuba Mundo or the WorkCycles Fr8) I will pick her up from her apartment and take her to school. It will be the most joyous occasion of 2010. Mikael at Copenhagenize talks about throwing his son’s bike on the front rack of his Velorbis when he goes to pick him up, so his son can ride home on his own.
This photo is so much fun, I printed it out and posted it on my refrigerator.
Passengers: the ultimate bike accessory. Want to see more photos? Marc at Amsterdamize has 260+ photos and videos in his Side Saddle set. Check the blog post about riding side saddle to get some tips.
