The Working Bike… A Nod to Summer

With the arrival of the pollen season, I mean spring, everyone getting out and exercising. I wanted to share photos of unique bikes I have collected.

I have shown you bikes before. (look here and here to see a few)   But the bikes I am interested in are ones that are not just for riding… they are for working!

Working bikes are seen everywhere in other countries. Everyone rides them.

Everyone except people here in the US.

It probably has something to do with the design of the cities in other countries. They are more centrally designed and easier to navigate. Think about a small town square and compare it to the freeway moving through Los Angles….see my point?

Well anyway, here are some that were just works of art!

Wooden detail for those who love old school racing boat looks…

This is the pick up truck version… used to haul kids.

And the ultimate working bike, (from Germany of course) …it even has an electric motor for additional assistance…

I love to bike and wish they were more usable in the US for hauling things and carrying babies…

But until they are, I’ll just appreciate the ones I find in other places.

If you see any interesting ones riding around, I’d love to see them.
