E-Madsen is now my car – Go By Bike Episode 1

Introducing my Daily Video Series – Go By Bike!

Today is my inaugural video of my NEW daily video series – Go By Bike! I started this series to talk about how to ride more and use your car less, including electric bikes, electric kits, cargo bikes, bike safety, and getting motivated to bike. Using your car less reduces your carbon footprint, saves energy, helps the environment, keeps you healthy, and makes your community a nicer place to live, so overall most people would agree it’s a good thing.

In today’s episode of Go By Bike, I show you how I set up my bicycle to carry 3 kids on my morning (and afternoon) commute. This may seem like a lot to carry, but I keep it fun, easy and practical. Check out my daily ride below…

What’s your daily commute vehicle? Post a comment and let me know.

Over and out…..

  1. Hi Elise,
    My daily commuter is the Surly Big Dummy that I just purchased from you guys! I’m really enjoying the extra stability that I gained over the old Trek+Xtracycle. My wife and I don’t have any kids, yet, but I can see how the Madsen would make it easier to haul some little ones. I’m glad the weather is warming up. It certainly makes mornings on a bicycle a little less cluttered. Here are pictures of both my old Trek and new Big Dummy: http://www.xtracyclegallery.com/2010/04/479-aaron-xtracycle-old-and-new.html

    ps – Jenna and I have been talking to Tod about ordering a Long Haul Trucker, soon!

  2. Very nice first person YouTube video of your Madsen. Just missing those little “shifting loads” in the bucket to get the full effect of your morning commute experience!

    Someday, I’ve dreamed of a similar experience but with a motor assist version of something like this:

    And how can you NOT want to spend some time on this tour?

    cheap, except for getting there!

    Best, Mark
