The Danes and the Dutch are too practical. Too Protestant! They leave their cargo bikes outside when they buy groceries, when they could be using them as shopping trollies. Supermarket chains, especially in the suburbs where the aisles are much wider, could be advertising themselves as places to ride through, without waking the baby, without double handling of groceries, without having to chain up outside or cover your saddle in case it rains. In the future grocery stores will chip all their items, so we can ride in, load up, and have the bill automatically deducted from our accounts as we ride out. For more great ideas, buy my book!
Thanks to 2 students of mine, Ian and Matt, for taking these photos. And thanks to The Trevallyn Grocer for letting me in with my big clunkin’ box bike 🙂
