Cargo bikes make great sleighs
We just had the pleasure of participating in the 13th Annual Amlings Holiday Toy Ride. What a rewarding fun time!
Over 100 riders gathered in Niles to load up trailers for the 12 mile ride to the Mystic Celt in Chicago where the USMC picks up all the toys. Two of us rode on our cargo bikes and transported about 100 toys between us. Small toys, balls, games, even a kids bike. Next year, we hope we can get some our friends and customers to join us on the ride.
Two storage bins, some tie down straps and carrying 60 toys 12 miles was a breeze. After the toys were unloaded, the bins were stacked on one side to narrow the load for the ride back.
