Cargo bike as 2-wheel minivan is here for long haul

Cyclists are pushing the limits of what they can put carry on cargo bikes — sturdy two-wheelers built to haul lots of stuff. The so-called SUV of bicycles is increasingly popular in pedal-friendly communities, from Washington to Massachusetts.

 

Families are using the bikes to do everything they did on four wheels — schlepping kids to school, hauling groceries or running errands — without the hassle of finding parking. Some do it to help the environment in a small way or to get exercise, while others say it is an easier, more fun way to get around.
