A Pleasant Day for a Ride

Did I mention it's been a bit snowy in Portland? Behold the Bakfiets (bahk-feets), a Dutch cargo-bike with a marine-grade plywood box. The name literally means “box bike.” (One Bakfiets, two Bakfietsen.)

So anyway, it's a wheelbarrow with pedals.

While Ruby the Pound Hound will ride inside it, she prefers running alongside to bark warnings at the pedestrians, sledders, and cars that I pass.
