Annemarie and her Bicicapace utility bike

Annemarie got rid of her car some three years ago and needed a bike with some more loading capacity. She saw the Bicicapace at the SPEZI Messe (fair for special bikes) at Germersheim, Germany. She bought it right there.

Annemarie fell for the Bicicapace because of it's esthetic design and practical aspects: "This little cargo bike apllies completely at my necessities and it is very manouvrable."

You can read the whole interview in French at the website of Paris Cargo Bike

Bicicapace was present at the International Cargo Bike Festival in Nijmegen.
