Cycling in Sydney Australia
I love my cargo bike (Gazelle Cabby). Can't really fault it, being able to ride over to the Metro and chuck a trolley load of groceries in it is bloody marvellous. I did have one small problem, and that is how do I secure the bike?
It has a nice wide, stable stand so I didn't need to lean it against anything, and it has a built in Axa lock on the back wheel, so people can't ride away on it. But I was still worried about people dicking with it when they shouldn't be. Now I have found a solution to that problem: chain two large dogs to it. No worries!
The greyhounds are pretty good, I tie their leads to the backrack (one on each side), and they keep pace as we ride along the footpath. No worries about them keeping up, according to Wikipedia their top speed is 65kph - I don't think I could push the Cabby that fast. Maybe I could train them to run in front of the bike and act as a wind break! That would save me having to install a beach ball!
I do have some reservations about their usefulness as guard dogs, when I came out of Woolies there was two old ladies patting and hugging the dogs. I'm pretty sure the ladies had no intentions of making off with the bike, but really, the dogs could try a bit harder with the security thing.
