Bike Move

Last weekend I participated in a Portland-style bike move.  A friend from work was moving house and one of her friends suggested moving by bicycle.  She borrowed a few trailers and spread the word.  When I heard about it I decided the Yuba and I had to be a part of it.  There were two trailers, 3 normal bikes with baskets or panniers and one folding bike, and the Yuba Mundo.  We managed to move everything in two trips (the second trip only needed 5 of us).

All in all it was a surprisingly easy affair to move a person’s  possessions around 6 km by bike.  I hope this idea takes off in Manchester, not only was it green, it was also a great chance to meet like minded people and have a fun time.
