Got stuff? Got kids? Carry them with your bike!

West Town Bikes recently hosted a great get together to demostrate of the power and fun of getting stuff and your family around by bicycle.

It provided participants the opportunity to see and try out the many types of bikes and devices used to haul cargo, whether it's groceries, kids or building supplies.

Kudos to Grid Chicago, West Town Bikes and others who made it happen. Hopefully we'll see a lot more of this in Chicagoland!
