Chicago Cargo Bike Roll Call at the International Cargo Bike Festival 2014

We are very excited to hear that Steve Vance of Chicago Cargo Bike Roll Call will attend the International Cargo Bike Festival 2014 on 12 & 13 April 2014 in Nijmegen.

Last year, Steve surprised us by writing about the Cargo Bike Festival in his blog and calling it the biggest cargo bike festival in the world. It probably is, but we hadn't realised that untill then.

Cargobikes Factory

Today I ran into a lovely site 'Cargobikes Factory'. It is a French site which describes all the benefits of the cargobike in modern everyday city life. Even if you don't read French it is worth watching it because of its beautifull pictures which speak for itself.
