TELL US ABOUT YOUR CARGO BIKE EXPERIENCE.
What I liked about this photo is that you can see what, who and where we are. What am I doing you might ask? Well here is your answer: we are riding a cargo bike. Mummy does the hard work and drives me everywhere it’s so fun you should do it too and kids you can sit at the front and your mum or your dad can peddle you every where. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.

What I liked about this was that we stopped at a few places and took a few photos and guess our last stop ……………….. it was …………….. outdoor trampolines!!!!!!! YAAAAAAAY it felt good to jump, but the trampolines were not that bouncy, but it still felt good to stretch my legs. This all together was 2 hours, there was one stop that I really, really liked. It was a place where they named the cargo bikes, Christiania. That was my favourite one.

What I did not like about it was …………………………………. NOTHING!!!!!!!! ………… it was all fun!!!!!! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

This Was Seriously Fun!

FACTS ABOUT CARGO BIKE IN COPENHAGEN BY FAMILY GLOBETROTTERS.
Cargo bikes have been around for some time but in Copenhagen they are known as Christiania bikes and they are synonymous with this fair city. The Christiania bike was created about 30 years ago by a resident of Freetown Christiania, Lars Engstrøm.

Freetown Christiania is a self-proclaimed autonomous neighbourhood of about 850 residents, covering 34 hectares. It is a green and car free zone that was created by a group of hippies who occupied some abandoned military barracks on the site and developed their own set of society rules, completely independent of the Danish government.

And because it was a car free zone, Lars Engstrøm had created a cargo bike for his girlfriend Annie to be able to cart goods and children around. The popularity of her birthday present took off immediately and the people of Copenhagen haven’t looked back since.

At present, 50% of its population already commute by bikes not because it is the cheapest form of transportation but simply a way of life.

Thanks Tara! My daughter had a ball being carted around like a princess! And I loved being able to see Copenhagen from the back roads just like the locals. One day I’m sure you’ll get there!
