The Cargo Bike

Ottawa Magazine - - Contents -

For Lana Stewart, a.k.a. Modal Mom, the choice to buy a cargo bike was a no-brainer: it’s the fam­ily ve­hi­cle. The Bab­boe al­lows her to chat with her six-year-old son, Alden Har­ri­son, about their next stop, that new park, and all the things they pass by. In ad­di­tion, it holds a lot of pool toys, soc­cer balls, and gro­ceries. Sure to bring a smile to kids and passersby alike, cargo bikes are in­creas­ingly com­mon in Ot­tawa. Most come from Europe and are cus­tom-or­dered through lo­cal bike shops (long and hefty, with a price tag to match, they’re not the kind of thing you pick up on a whim). From $2,600. Avail­able through Tall Tree Cyles, 1318 Welling­ton St. W., 613-725-2453, and Foster’s, 305 Bank St., 613-236-9611.
