The Wall Street Journal, of all papers, has done a piece on cargo bikes. Hopefully this is a sign that these types of bikes are gaining acceptance!
According to an estimate by Copenhagenize Design Co., an urban planning consultancy specializing in bicycle culture, there are about 40,000 cargo bikes in Greater Copenhagen. The city estimates that 28% of families with two children own one. But it’s hardly just family hauling: Cargo bikes are used by everyone from the Danish postal service to espresso vendors.
