you don't need no stinkin car.

I see so many new friends at the markets we now attend coming in with their re-usable shopping bags and leaving burdened down with groceries. I always wonder how they make it home without their arms falling off (assuming they didn't drive to the market).

I couldn't help but post this video! And there are many other videos just like this one that show the extreme resourcefulness of people and the flexibility of bikes. I thought that this invention was amazing for folks who live in the city. Of course, we still have so much work to do in North America when it comes to bikes vs. cars vs. pedestrians. But, we'll get there one day...probably through necessity more than advocacy. Enjoy!

  2. Hi Avenue! It was actually really great. For the first time in that venue I didn't know what to expect. Sold some flour and hope to sell more this coming saturday!

  3. This thing is totally cool, come to think of it you can go wherever you want without car, plus the fact that its riding in the bike is also a form of exercise.
