Cargo bike co-op

by Richard Masoner

Cargo bikes are handy for hauling large loads, but not everybody has the place to store one, and cost can be a factor. It doesn’t always make sense to a cargo bike or large trailer sitting around all those days that you don’t need one.

A small group in Vancouver, BC have started a new Cargo Bike Coop to buy and store a variety of cargo bikes for members to use.

Right now they’re raising funds and testing various options including long tail bikes, three wheeled cargo trikes, trailers and electric assist options.
