I like biking, so this summer I decided to do all my errands less than 10 miles by bike. I purchased a Surly “Big Dummy” cargo bike (which is also known as a “long tail” or Xtracycle style bike) for $1500. I regularly carry my 9-year-old daughter and four bags of groceries on my bike. Kids dig it. Because Ithaca (where I live) is extremely hilly, I mounted a Clever Cycles Stokemonkey electric motor on my bike. Now I can run my errands in any season up any hill with any load less than 400 pounds no sweat. Sweet.
