Open Streets = Active Transportation

OPENing STREETS to people encourages active forms of transportation on skates, bicycles, and on foot. The photos below were from San Gabriel Valley Open Streets event near El Monte,CA

The Lazy Bike

It looks like a lawn chair on wheels. This fella already rode his mini-fat trike 25 miles along the Santa Ana River to Seal Beach and back to Whittier Narrows and he looked like he is just lounging. 

Hauling lumber with a Bikes At Work Trailer

We are building a chicken coop. We bought plans from the site. Below is how I hauled the listed lumber. I always wanted to haul lumber via cargobike and heavy duty trailer. It is a challenge and a fun workout. Once I arrive home, The whole cargo rig goes in the back yard (no unloading) the lumber stays on the trailer until needed.
