Riders bringing the Xtra Oomph into Bike to Work Day

We love seeing cargo bike making headlines. Ashley here from the Support Team and seeing a cargo bike for the first time was what helped me to realize these options excited for folks needing to haul people or gear on two bikes! Recently a customer who bikes with his rescue dogs to work on his electric EdgeRunner shared with us an article he was interviewed for in the Cape Cod Times, “Wheeling to Work on Cape Cod”.

“Alex Franks brings his dogs to work, but not in the usual way.

“I sold my car and bought a cargo bike,” said Franks, an engineer, when talking about his workday commute from East Falmouth to Woods Hole.

With his feet on the pedals of the electric-assist bicycle, and with Labrador retriever mixes Kiwi and Chick Pea in a wagon behind, Franks makes quick work of his 7- to 14-mile ride, depending on his route, where at 6 a.m. there’s hardly ever any traffic.”

Tell us about the first time you saw a cargo bike? What was your reaction? Also, we’d love to hear your stories on Bike to Work day. Leave your story below!
