Let’s be Functionally Chic

By Henri Venable, Bicycle Initiative Intern

Sustainability is an important topic, that’s for sure. Unfortunately, it’s a topic incessantly accompanied by a lot of doom and gloom. Well fear not, this is a nice lighthearted post with just a little sustainability thrown in.

Bicycling is on the rise in the United States (finally!) but the perception remains that bicycling is purely a recreational, as opposed to functional, endeavour. You can’t possibly do your grocery shopping, go to work, chauffeur your kids, or blah blah blah on a bike…so they say. These lovely people beg to differ.

Haul some stuff like it ain’t no thang!

And of course, the infamous local Uel Zing.

So grab a bike, be beautiful, be functional, be sustainable and before you know it you might be canceling your car insurance!
