Cargo bike seen in Aberdeen!

I’ve been nominated by Geoff Le Pard – a quick-witted author and blogger at TanGental – to participate in a five-day blogging challenge and I’ve accepted! The challenge is to publish a photograph on five consecutive days with an accompanying story or paragraph – fiction or non-fiction – to go with it. Here’s day one!


I took this photograph while I was having a coffee at Pret a Manger café in Union St this morning. This is the only cargo bike I’ve ever seen in Aberdeen other than my own Busby. I do enjoy being something of a celebrity, or as close as I’m ever going to get to one, when I cycle around on Busby and people stare at me with mouths open and eyes bulging. Another cargo bike is probably going to reduce the “Look at me! Look at me!” effect somewhat, but do I care? Not one bit. I was thrilled to see another cargo bike and I hope they start breeding like rabbits. Long live the cargo bike!

I have to nominate someone now and I choose PedalWorks, Canadian blogger and cyclist extraordinaire.

The rules of the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge are:

1) Post a photo each day for five consecutive days.
2) Attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction, non-fiction, poetry, or a short paragraph. It’s entirely up to the individual.
3) Nominate another blogger to carry on the challenge. Your nominee is free to accept or decline the invitation. This is fun, not a command performance!

  1. I see cargo bikes regularly in my area. In fact, there are a couple of delivery services using them. And, the woman across the street has hired a “green gardener” that uses a modified version to cart his tools.

  2. I saw my first, I saw my first!!! Bristol. About 2.30, full of shopping or so it looked. Very sedate lady cyclist – with helmet, naturellement! Been over at Pedalworks – v interesting blog. Makes me tired just reading it!
