The Adelaide City Council has a Bullit cargo bike for loan (see http://api.ning.com/files/hk6SVyIV9dfSNuvVip216wgHjhRmzHXmZXKZwHyIm...)

We have arranged to borrow this cargo bike for the cargo bike picnic. Only issue: we need someone to pick it up on Sunday morning (from the Adelaide South West Community Centre, 171 Sturt Street) and return it on Monday morning.

Anyone able to do this? You'll earn serious brownie points.

Sam Powrie is probably going to bring his Surly Big Dummy.

Sophia, perhaps bring your box bike, assuming Jeremy will bring the Xtracycle.

But which cargo bike will I bring?

I ride a 16kg 1958 Raleigh Sports complete with rod brakes and chain case  - hardly a cargo bike, although there were butcher's bike and sidecar versions. However, considering the bike has been carrying its various owners for 54 years, and should easily last another 50, I think that it's a true case of 're-cycling' and has done more than its bit for reducing consumption of fossil fuels etc. See you there.

There will definitely be an electrified Yuba Mundo (and possibly also a non electrified one), one or more Xtracycles, Bakfiets style box bikes and a Chariot Cougar child trailer. Does anyone know who owns a Surly Big Dummy or a Kona Ute in Adelaide?

Will there be any child trailers? A S/H trailer a cheaper option than a cargo bike.

A BUG member who always cycled for transport bought a child seat and was really looking forward to cycling again. However, the add-on seat makes it impossible to cycle -- I have seen her ride so slowly with her hips moving awkwardly. I would like to invite her.

My 1 tonne ute stays up my driveway and is only used when I need to transter my tools of trade between building sites ( and there are a lot of tools, not a namby pamby laptop and lunchbox ! ) there is very little I could do to reduce my cabon footprint, other than ride a steel bike, carbon frames are not recycle-able(?) so thanks for the invitation but I shall be out on my bike!!
