    A garden full of native plants. Not pictured: the two helpers who occupied the bench seat home.

    I couldn't think of a reason that this would be anymore dangerous than transporting them by car, so I did it and it was lovely. I'm open to suggestions as to why this might not be wise for consideration before the next time I run out of propane, however. I did bungee them down between taking the picture and actually riding; they were a bit tippy otherwise.

    When a guy in your neighborhood is giving away free firewood and you have both a cargo bike and a fire pit...

    They did great! I wouldn't recommend going down Superman Hill with that much in the box, but I've gone down Superman hill with a lightly loaded box without trouble.

    Someone asked for help moving a bookcase that will not fit in a minivan/SUV/car. I offered to help with the bike.

    Then she called back: her husband says I won't be able to move it.

    Which is how I ended up biking a large bookcase through the middle of Clarendon on a most perfect June day ��
