or for the larger family

Browsing through an excellent article elsewhere on the blogosphere, I noticed a reference to a bakfiet. First question I asked myself was wtf is a bakfiet? Ah, the ease of research on the internet, a quick dip into a search engine and up popped a plethora of articles, posts and answers. A bakfiet seems to be a Dutch contrivance, bike based but adapted for cargo carrying and even carrying little people.

I have often wondered how one would go about converting to a bike based life, work aside, especially if you have to do a long run with shopping etc well now I know. No silly trailers dangling off the back, just a modern take on a front loading trade bike.

With dealers in Cambridge and Ely maybe we’ll see some of these on the streets near us soon.

Has anyone out there tried one?

    Hey! That would work great for the littler picking…… only on the fire tracks though I suspect?
