Cargo Bike Businesses – Go By Bike Episode 34

What can you do with a bike?

One of the cool things about the internet is all of the cool posts people put up about all kinds of unusual things! And one of the cool things about cargo bikes is all the cool uses people are putting them to. Beyond the typical “mini van” or “pick up ” uses, there are a bunch of people doing fun bike-based businesses. What a great idea!

These are just a few businesses I came across, so let me know what you’ve found! Post a link below.

  1. Hi Elise
    Thanks for the post on rootsradical e-group that brought me here to your sight, and now to this page.

    Yes I run my businesses off my cargo-bike!
    During the week, I’m a Permaculture gardener/designer, mainly by bike on my stoked Xtracycle. I regularly carry electric flymo mower, electric weedeater, cables, tools for general garden/lawn work, and occasionally get tree pruning work so I carry a 2.5m step ladder, or I build mulched no-dig gardens and haul hay-bales and stacks of flattened cardboard boxes. On a Saturday morning I haul everything I need to run a kite stall at the big local market.
