The slow movement is perfect for our family – we’re slow in general (just ask our friends and family). Sometimes our friends eat before they come to our house for dinner – because they know we’ll be eating late. What’s the rush anyway? We prefer to appreciate everything about life: take each day as it comes, enjoy the little things, savor time with our children as well as family and friends. I purposefully structure my life with lots of time for everything. I especially limit the number of structured activities my kids participate in – we all know how out of control that has gotten!
Slow cargo cycling is easy for us to embrace. Who cares if it takes a little longer to get there? I’m in no rush. I prefer to be out there pedaling to my destination — it’s a much more fun and pleasant way to get around than driving. I don’t care if I don’t get there fast. In fact most of the time I prefer it (except when I’m bombing down hills with the kids on the back pretending we’re on a roller coaster).
