Cargo Bike Demo at The Bike Swap on Saturday!

chicago_bike_swap  The Chicago Bike Swap takes place this Saturday at UIC from 10:00am to 5:0opm.  Running from 10:00am – 2:00pm will be a cargo bike demo featuring cargo bikes from local riders (like the Ding Ding Let’s Ride family)  for you to take a look at, ask questions about, and test ride!

Be sure to swing by the demo area between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.  to view, admire, puzzle over, learn about, touch, and try a variety of unusual cargo bikes and trailers.  Coordinator Steven Vance has rounded up a rare sampling of bike cargo options with the assistance of their gracious owners.

What kind of cargo bikes will be there?  Yuba Mundos,  Big Dummys, X-tra Cycles,  Dutch cargo bikes,  and probably a bucket bike, and bakefits or two. Check out these photos from a Cargo Bike Roll Call event we had in 2011 – you may see some of these bikes on Saturday! And just to make sure you’re properly prepped for the event, here are  few other posts devoted to specific types of cargo bikes:
