Locking Up a Cargo Bike With the Kidical Mass Philly Moms



Marni, my Kidical Mass co-organizer and I created a video for other parents about locking up a cargo bike at your destination. This may seem simple to some but we felt like it can take a while to get use to locking up with kids in tow and a very large bike in the city. This particular video focuses on locking up to a pole, but we plan to do more including how to lock overnight at your own home.

If you have any other ideas for videos we would love to hear them!

The locks used are all ABUS and available from Firth & Wilson (who kindly loaned them to us!)
 in order of use:
  1. ABUS IVEN
  2. ABUS BORDO
  3. ABUS Wheel Lock and Chain



*REMEMBER WE ARE NOT BIKE LOCK PROFESSIONALS OR PROFESSIONALS AT ANYTHING WE ARE MOMS TRYING TO HELP OTHER PARENTS*

*PS Shout out to Grad School for teaching me basic editing and use of camera

  3. Hi and thanks for the tips about those locks. I've been biking around the NYC area and yes, a bike lock is a vital necessity. Well, protecting one's possession is a must in ALL cities so it's good to know of my options. There are still reviews of the top bike locks which I found useful.

  4. Take the time to find out what their customers are saying. Do they have satisfied customers? Are they safely transporting cargo overseas? Are they making deliveries on time?Логистические Услуги

  8. christania’s “Copenhagen Bike Rental” bikes are rolling across the city. The system, less than a year old, is funded by christania’s municipal government. It is currently only in one of christania’s 22 administrative districts. Although a 2nd generation system, there are 12 “Houses” in this district, each with around 40 bikes. The yearly subscription cost is the equivalent of $2 US, and allows the use of a bike for up to four hours at a time. In less than a year, there have been 6,000 subscriptions sold. There are larger 3rd generation systems in the world, which do not have a subscription to bike ratio as big as that.
