CommuteOrlando Cargo Ride on Sunday, May 2, 2010. Meet up at 9:30 AM at Cady Way Trailhead parking lot.
Bring your bicycle trailer, your cargo bike, your baskets or panniers, or whatever you use to carry cargo by bike.
We’ll have a meet, greet and eat (light breakfast) while everyone gathers, then will leave at 10 AM for a nice ride to the Lake Eola Market. The market has fresh produce, plants, food, and other items. We’ll have a chance to check out everyone’s cargo rigs and get some ideas, consider possibilities, and ask questions.
There will be interesting prizes! Look forward to seeing you there!

4. Load penguin and bucket of fish

Above is a platform trailer similar to what you may see at Rodney’s upcoming Build-a-Trailer Workshop event. They are certainly versatile and good for all kinds of cargo, although a load of penguins and cold beer is hard to beat.
If your cargo is canine, a special trailer like the one to the left makes the ride fun.
Below is a versatile, lightweight cargo trailer that folds up small and tows like nothing is behind you, which can be good, especially if you’re hauling something you’d rather not think about.
