Community Tricycle AND COMMUNITY TRAILOR Project Underway
The Community Tricycle has been finished and is ready for use.
The community tricycle project intends to provide a no-cost outlet for those wishing to move bulkier and heavier objects and goods without the use of a motorized vehicle. Great for hauling groceries, recyclables, small boxes, goods, small furniture, kegs and other things under 200 lbs in a less than 5 mile radius in town. It is an adult sized tricycle.
One can contact me to borrow the tricycle provided that they take good care of it, secure it when not in use, and return it in a reasonable time. There is also a facebook group http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/group.php?gid=31479442802 to join to show your support.
You are responsible for your own safety and providing your own lock.
The tricycle currently needs a tarp and a good set of lights (and better parts) if anyone wishes to donate such.
This is all part of an effort to help people live a more car-free and car-lite lifestyle by providing a service to counter one of the barriers to being car-free… how to move stuff.
The tricycle is not intended to carry passengers in the cargo area, and operator must know how to ride in traffic.
Enjoy. Pictures soon!
