Sydney has not fully embraced the cargo or freight bike yet but slowly, as with our developing bicycle culture, times are changing.
First there was this beautiful white Bullitt cargo bike up in Bondi, my sources say it's been seen around a lot lately so I'm hoping for a glimpse of the owner soon.
This weekend also sees the end of the two week long Sydney Design Festival and incorporated into that was the Live Futures 2020 Festival, a curated weekend of events and workshops aimed at opening discussions and changing the way we live.
Those forward thinking folks at sustainability resource centre The Watershed in Newtown were there to lend a hand by schlepping equipment around in their two freight bikes. Their Gazelle Cabby and Xtracycle will form part of the proposed "library" of transport bikes due to open for public use in the next few months.
The Watershed is a joint initiative of the City of Sydney and Marrickville Councils and is yet another great way that Sydney is supporting sustainable environments within the urban community.
I caught up with Mithra and Andrew from The Watershed as they took the Gazelle for a spin - oh and my Felix is also a BIG fan....
Hey, that's my Bullitt.
ha ha cool - I left you a card hoping you'd get in touch !
Love to have you and your Bullitt on one of our Cycle Chic Sundays rides :-)
So rare to see one here.... email me !
Hey, that's my dream bike. Unfortunately, being an inner city type, I live too close to the shops, school etc to make it worthwhile. It would be perfect for the folks who live out in the burbs. I hope they catch on or will I have to move?~ian
