For the past year, I’ve been telling myself I need some sort of cargo bike. I’d love to ride to work more often, but find myself hauling something that ends up pushing me into the car instead. I’ve looked at building up an Xtracycle for a long time, but these sweet Madsen cargo bikes have really been catching my eye.
So I was thrilled to see that MADSEN Cargo Bikes is running a contest, and giving away two bikes in July. If you’d like more information on how to get in on the action, you can click the little banner below for all the details:
Now, I personally don’t see myself on a bike with a big ol’ tub on it. I do like that blue, but the tub just isn’t working for me. I’ve liked both the Xtracycles and Yuba’s for their handy dandy rear racks. This black Madsen really seems to be a great version of that same type of bike.
Of course, I’d probably still have a hard time convincing my cyclophobic 15 year old to hop on the back deck and go for a ride, but maybe if I outfitted it with enough safety harnesses and a power outlet to recharge her phone, I could talk her into it!
