Biking stuff to Bike to Work Day...
Today is Bike to Work Day, though I'm sure you wouldn't know it by looking at the 405. However, there is hope. In population centers around the country, small contingencies of intrepid "bike commuters" are riding their bikes to their places of employment (or in these tough times, to the nearest bar).
Here in Long Beach, the bike advocacy group that I volunteer with put on a pit-stop for said cyclists. We carried stuff, of course, by bike in an amazing bike parade of cargo bicycles ranging from an Xtracycle, Bob trailer, flatbed trailer, front loading Bilenky cargo bike, panniers and the backpack. Talking the talk AND biking the bike.
