You know what Wallingford needs? A cargo and electric bike shop, that’s what Wallingford needs.
Oh hey, hi! Look what Caroline forwarded to us from Henry:
As you know, I’m starting up a bike business dedicated to cargo bikes and electric bikes (and electric cargo bikes). I have all the tools I need, a bunch of cargo bike attachments, electric bike kits, a website… but no space to work!
I have at least one other lead, but I’m curious — do you know of anyone in the Wallingford area with a garage or shed who might enjoy having me set up shop? In return I can offer some rent money (~$150 a month), bike maintenance work, and the satisfaction of supporting a young person in living his passion. 🙂
Let me know if anything comes to mind.
Now, as someone who lives on the slope dropping from 45th down to Burke, I have a hard-time justifying a cargo bike in my life. It just feels like it makes more sense in the flats of Ballard or at least in upper Wallingford, between 45th and Green Lake. But I do just like to look at them, they’re just so…Dutch! Oh, and an electric bike*, yummers.
Come on folks, who can help Henry out? Stop by his web site, LionTail Cycles, and let him know.
* Just so you know, electric bikes aren’t fully electric powered, you still have to peddle them. You can just turn up the electric motors when you hit a hill, which makes the hill feel a lot flatter.
