The Electric Cargo Bike Revolution! [VIDEO]

There is a revolution in transportation happening right now and it is the electric cargo bike revolution!  I love to ride my e-cargo bike around town instead of driving; it is so much more fun!

Enjoy this video: “(R)Evolutions per Minute: Cargo Bikes in the US – a trailer for the crowd sourced documentary”

From the video producer Liz Canning “Do you love your cargo bike?  Has it changed your life?  Your family?  Your town?

Join me in producing an authentic crowdsourced document of a cultural revolution in progress. I’m seeking submissions from cargo bike folk all over the world to combine in the form of a feature length documentary.  Watch the trailer, visit my site, get inspired and learn how to become a co-director!”

Here is a link to Liz Canning’s website and a link to the Facebook group.

This is a great project that needs to be publicized!  I will be involved and I hope you will be too.

If you have a cargo bike story, please share it with Liz.  If you are a cargo newbie, make it a point to check them out online or at a bike shop near you.  Here is an electric cargo bike guide.

Are you part of the cargo bike revolution?  Please take a minute to share your story in the comments section below.

And please share the electric cargo bike revolution with your friends.  The more people on bikes, the better :)

Thanks!

    What people don’t realize is that cargo bikes are a safer alternative to using huge semis to get things to neighborhood retail locations when you aren’t hauling tons of stuff. Most deliveries are only a few hundred pounds per stop and could be done by a fit person riding a cargo bike, or an almost-fit person with an e-assist cargo bike. Employment would be up, fuel use and pollution would be down, and most importantly the risk to citizens from trying to get huge vehicles through city streets would be completely eliminated. There would be a slight bit of infrastructure change required, basically freight depots at outskirts of towns for transferring cargo from huge semi-trailers to cargo bikes. but the upside would be the reduced congestion from having huge semis parked everywhere and only delivering a small amount of merchandise to each location, reduced pollution from all the gear changes required to get trucks through city and suburban traffic and the heavy throttle required to get the load moving, and reduced danger to other roads users from the large trucks with even bigger blind spots that can and do kill thousands every year.
