Val Kleitz interview

Alan of ecovelo posted this wonderful Cargo Bike Pilot interview of Val Kleitz. The video, by the Cargo Bike blog, shows why Val’s a legend around here.

He’s been an inspiration and a huge support of our move toward (and efforts to blog about) family cargo-biking goodness. Since we love the Val and all of his infinite wisdom, we thought it was worth posting here as well.

The group cargo ride images make us lament our late start for the July 4th ride even more. Who would have thought they’d leave close to on time for once! For what it’s worth, the photos from our cargo ride of two+two are up.

  1. His was the first xtracycle I’ve seen in the wild. With my current route I pass him almost everyday on my bike commute.

  2. Dreadnought represent!

    The crew at are all HUGE fans of Val — he’s our cargo bike hero, and is so full of insight into the various inner workings of bicycles that I often seek his advice.

    Val’s Xtracycle experiences influenced me heavily (as did Anne’s and Tim’s) into putting my own on the road, and it is one of the best cycling-related decisions I’ve ever made.

    Keep on haulin’, cargo-bike riders — we love you!
