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.
Two cargo bikes roll into a bar …
… and the bartender says, “I assume you’re here to get loaded.”

In November of 2012, I posted a sketch of a John Deere cargo bike with the thought, What would a company cargo bike look like? The idea is to take a company and adapt its style and branding on a cargo bike. A Microsoft cargo bike would be distinctly different than that of an Apple cargo bike.
At the time, somewhat in the back of my mind, I was thinking of future project I would take on with Tom LaBonty for my eldest son’s cargo bike–the Cargo Flyer, a Radio Flyer cargo bike. The Cargo Flyer is underway at Tom’s Cargo Bikes. You can read about the Cargo Flyer here.
Now on to the great drawing at the top. I posted my cargo bike company sketches on Flickr, and Tom, as he is apt to do, took on the company-cargo-bike challenge. Above is his idea for Sinclair Oil. This design would make a great t-shirt or poster. I love the way Tom thinks, beautiful design and a bit of tongue-and-cheek humor.
