We recently bought an "e-bakfiets" and have been getting good use out of it. With fall weather it came time to assemble the Clarijs canopy we bought as an add-on. Clarijs is another Dutch company that makes various bike products. I decided to document the process since it's a bit involved in the current instructions leave something to be desired. I got some help from this article by Bicycle Belle out of Boston.
We just bought a box bike (from the Dutch "bakfiets") from Urkai. It's quite a bike. It's large, long, heavy. But it rides smooth and easy even when the box is loaded with a kid and everything for an outing.
Allo Vélo will be at the upcoming Toronto Bike Show (March 6-8, booth 650 at the Better Living Centre at the Ex) showing off the Danish cargo bikes they carry, namely, Triobike, Bullitt and Butchers & Bicycles. Allo Vélo, unless you count my wife, is the biggest sponsor of this blog. Thanks!
Two favorite topics of mine: fruit and bikes. Not Far From the Tree is a Toronto organization that goes to homes and other locations to pick fruit. The fruit is then divided into thirds among the tree owners, volunteers and local food banks. All of the fruit is transported by bike trailers and cargo bikes.
