DRT rider registration form

Class descriptions
Citizen Class: For those who are excited about proving the relevance of cargo bikes to disaster relief but have no interest in extreme performance. Riders in this class are in it for fun and adventure. A spirited hustle.

Open Class: For those who are interested in pushing the performance of body and machine. How fast can you and your vehicle go?

Electric Assist Class: For those of you who want to take it to the next level. Riders in this class must bring a dead battery (or multiple dead batteries) to the secure solar-charging station the day before to demonstrate power grid independence. E-class riders will visit one extra Checkpoint, transport one extra piece of gear, and conquer one extra hill.

Volunteer Registration
Cargo Enthusiasts! Volunteers are needed to make this year’s Fair & Trails a reality. If you want to help beforehand, out on the course, or at OMSI, we have a job for you . . . there’s all kinds of ways to help out, just fill out our handy online form.

Weight Reduction (wittco posted on December 20th, 2012 )

Clean #cargobike = less weight ;0)

I got my cargo bike back from Splendid Cycles and it weighs less. Well, probably not a great deal less, but during the routine tune up, they cleaned the bike–top to bottom, wheels and all. The only other time my bike was this clean (or light) was when I bought it. I am sure it weighs less with all of the mud and dried leaf residue of the year removed.
