I'm going to take it a step further and declare that my mother is THE indicator species. She is the most cautious person I know. If you see her doing something, you know it's safe to follow.
Therefore, as of this morning, I am declaring cargo biking to be a safe activity. My mom, on her own willing accord, happily climbed into the Bullitt's box and rode with me to the coffee shop--helmet-free, nonetheless! .
This was one of the best rides I've had. We chatted and turned heads along the way. It is really good that she's been doing yoga because it was quite a squeeze to get all her limbs inside. However, she was cheerful and relaxed and hopped back out with ease (and a giant smile).
Thanks, mom! You're the best!!!
