Anyone Got A Bike Trailer To Lend?

Written by Boston Biker on Aug 07

Got this in the email, if you can help out drop a line to [email protected] and I will pass it along to John.

John Writes:

I figured I would start here first. I am looking for a bike trailer to help with moving during the month of August. Either to borrow for a couple weeks or on specific days. I am willing to pay a security deposit or a small fee for its use. I figured I would reach out to the BB network before I try something on craigs list etc. Any help would be great!

Calling All Cargo Bikes!

Written by Boston Biker on Jun 09

Meridith emailed me looking for people who wanted to help her bike move. Seems like a great way to have fun (I know I had fun with the last bike move I did) and FREE PIZZA AND BEER!!!

See below for details.

Bike Move, Saturday, June 20th, 3pm, Jamaica Plain: I’m intrigued and inspired to attempt a bicycle move from my current place to the one I’m moving to 1/2 mile away in JP. I’m looking for a group of motivated bicyclists to help make this move happen. I’m also looking for the equipment necessary to pull it off, i.e. bike trailers and straps. I’ll hire movers to do the lifting up and down the stairs, and will provide pizza and beer on the other end! If you are interested in helping with this, or have equipment we could use, or suggestions for how to pull it off, please contact me: [email protected] It would also be great to find someone to film this if we are able to pull it off!!

Bike Move!

Written by Boston Biker on Mar 21

Myself and some friends did a bike move this weekend. Worked like a charm. Moved all the stuff, even the big stuff, didn’t use a single drop of gas. Had a great great time too. Special thanks to Metro Pedal Power for helping with the cargo trike, and the Dutch Bicycle Company for letting us borrow two big cargo bikes! You guys rocked!

Lots and lots of pictures below.
