Last week I discovered yet another use for a cargobike. I use it to get me up in the morning. No, not by cycling round the bedroom; it would hardly fit for a start. I throw on some clothes, grab my keys and I'm off.This is what those dog walkers have known all along. Walking - and cycling - activates the feet, which pump blood up the legs (against gravity) which all adds up to persuading your sleepy circulation to send oxygen-filled blood up to where it's needed most: your head. The awake brain is a happy brain. So, neat if you ask me - and no effort if you're sitting on a cargobike. And just as those dog walkers know they'll meet other dog walkers, other people will be out riding their cargobikes, whether to work or on errands. Plenty of people to exchange waves and smiles with, a very nice way to start the day.
