Cargo Bikes: The New Station Wagon

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!

Milano Cargo Bike

excerpt:

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.
