For some unknown reason I now have a subscription to Bicycling (must have been a free gift for something I did). For the most part I have found it to be pretty lame, mostly about the aspect of the sport that turns me off (several adds per issue for men's hair removal? Seriously?).

However, this issue was a very pleasant surprise: A roughly 10 page article on cargo bikes.

I really dig the bakfiets.

I subscribe to Bicycle Times, so I'm used to seeing plenty of cargo bikes, but this was perhaps more comprehensive than any single article I've seen in BT, and is well written for an audience that is not already indoctrinated into the whole idea of "utility" biking.

Anyways, kudos to Bicycling for doing this article, and doing it well.

Also, they had a one page spread on bike-shares.
