    Well, our very own cvcalhoun knew, that's who. Nice work, Carol!

    Thanks! Pet peeve of mine is that we see so many articles saying something like, "Well, biking is healthy if you survive, but you have this big risk of being hit by a bus." Even taking into account the risk of being hit by a bus, you're less likely to die in any given year if you bike than if you don't. The problem is, if someone gets hit by a bus while biking, it's obviously related to the bike. But if they die of a heart attack while not biking, no one says, "Well, if only they'd biked, that wouldn't have happened."

    Ahem! I'll get down off my soapbox now.

    I'm upset they interviewed a cargo bike family at my kids' school that wasn't me.

    And I'm impressed that there is more than one cargo bike family at your kids' school.

    We have more than a dozen regular cargo bike families, a bunch of occasional cargo bike families, some CaBi+kids bike families, etc etc etc.

    I assumed that you had passed on the contact info to share the story.

    Not an unreasonable assumption, but no, they didn't talk to me.
