I don't have a compelling story to tell. I stopped driving a few years back. Now I do pretty much everything by bike. Much of the time that bike is a cargo bike.

Happy and Sad Conundrum
The cargo I'm hauling today is both happy and sad. I had an injury a few years back that made it impossible for me to ride any of my unicycles. I held onto them to see if things would get better, but unfortunately that has not happened. A unicycle saddle hits me JUST in the wrong place.
Today is the day that my favorite unicycle goes to a new home. It is a Surly Conundrum... made for a 26" wheel and a very fat, 4"-wide tire. It was a fun ride for everything from late-night liquor store runs, to mellow singletrack rides and snow rides around the neighborhood.
The fun thing about the transfer of this cargo is that the recipient doesn't know it is coming. I don't even know him. He's a co-worker of someone I met a few months ago. The mutual friend was telling me that he'd been looking for a Conundrum for a long time, since they're no longer available. Hopefully this will be a nice surprise.
