Funky Tricycles Downtown? Those Are Ours

Nihola Family Cargo Trikes Ed Fuentes

This pair of Nihola Family Cargo tricycles will be handling paper delivery duties for blogdowntown Weekly starting this week.

If you see a pair of funky-looking cargo tricycles wandering the streets of Downtown starting today, go ahead and give them a wave. The two Nihola cargo trikes will be delivering copies of blogdowntown Weekly, which hits the streets tomorrow.

The trikes are Downtown in a partnership we've done with Flying Pigeon LA, a bike shop in Highland Park that specializes in cycles designed for everyday errands like riding to work, getting groceries and transporting the kids. They particularly stock stock Dutch bikes like the Batavus Favoriet, a model that I took a spin on Sunday while the trikes were being readied.

Flying Pigeon's Josef Bray-Ali put together this little video on Sunday when Kathy and I visited the shop to pick up the trikes and ride them back to Downtown. He has more about the Danish Nihola tricycles on the shop's blog.
