LAB to LAB: Handmade and Custom Cargo Bike Ride THIS COMING SUNDAY!!!!
Sunday, June 9 @ 3 PM — Portland, Oregon
Ride from SE Lucky Lab to NE Lucky Lab
My son, Kael, recently received a Tom LaBonty cargo bike. This ride is his idea. Join fellow custom-cargo enthusiasts for a celebration of handmade, one of a kind, utilitarian cycles. Anyone who owns a custom cargo bike, and everyone who simply loves cargo bikes, is welcome. We will start at the SE Lucky Lab and ride to the NE Lucky Lab because you cannot spell LaBonty without LAB. Meet up time at SE Lucky Lab is 3 pm. Hot Rod style display at both locations; bike information cards; and wonky cargo bike games! Come for a haul-of-a-good time!

Happy Mother’s Day ( wittco posted on May 12th, 2013 )

Cargo bike culture may seemingly be pushed forward by males; however, it is the day-to-day use of cargo bikes for family that is the foundation. This foundation was set and is kept by females.

To all of the wonderful mothers out there, on and off cargo bikes. To you we tip our helmets.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Cargo Moms.
