While running errands for DRTpdx, Kael and I stopped off at Metrofiets headquarters. Kael was admiring Jamie’s bike and asking questions about how it rides. Jamie, co-owner and builder of Metrofiets, pushed down his seat, pulled the bike out of the shop, and told Kael that he could take it for a spin. What a treat! A kid in a cargo bike candy store.
Kael hopped on. I started to give Kael instructions on how to get used to the feeling of a long john, but before I could finish my sentence, Kael had taken off, competently down the road. I ran after him for awhile, taking a few photos until Matthew Sellens pulled up behind me so that I could hop on his Metrofiets cargo bike which is when I took the video. (My applogies for not editing the video. I do not have enough memory on my computer to render videos.)
I wrote about Kael’s enthusiams in a prior post called Cargo Kael.
