Portland Design Works has teamed up with us to give one lucky winner the perfect winter riding package! Enter below to win.
PDW presents the Year-Round Rider Kit, with latest and greatest gear to keep you pedaling in style all winter and into the new year! The Year-Round Rider Kit includes: The best-selling Full Metal Fenders provide full-wrap coverage, even shielding your shoes and riders on your rear wheel thanks to sturdy rubber mudflaps. Made of anodized aluminum and adorned with laser graphics and an embossed alloy head badge, the Full Metal Fenders are a beautiful complement to any bike. The Pathfinder Headlight incorporates three new technologies to help you see and be seen while riding, day and night. The Vertical Cutoff Beam is designed to focus the 200 lumen main beam onto the road in front of you and prevents lost lumens that can blind oncoming traffic. For daytime riding, the Daytime Running Flash is bright enough to make you seen even on the brightest days. The Battery Meter lets you know exactly how much battery life you have left before needing to recharge with the included USB cord. The Pathfinder includes a powerful lithium-ion battery and a darkness destroying CREE LED bulb. It provides superior luminous guidance for up to 25 hours of ride time. The just-released Daybot Tail Light has a CREE LED to power a 100 lumen Daytime Pulse mode for increased visibility on sunny days. Switch from Day Modes to Night Modes to conserve battery power. The Daybot can be mounted vertically or horizontally and includes brackets for your seatpost and seatstays. Be the first to get your hands on a pre-release of the Task Bask! The Task Basket is a convenient and classy cargo option, made of durable alloy tubing and a handsome bamboo platform. The sturdy bracket is adjustable and fits 22.0-31.8mm handlebars. The Task Basket also includes a Ulock carrying slot as well as a headlight mount underneath the platform.

Earlier this summer, Yuba Bikes held a business plan contest to give away a Supermarché front loader cargo bike to someone with a creative business idea involving said bicycle.
The Yuba Cargo Bike Biz Plan Contest aimed to show the world what a bike, especially the Supermarché, can do. This front loader cargo bike can haul up to 300 pounds of cargo (not including the driver), and its big, low front rack can be piled high, watched over and makes the bike easy to maneuver. Yuba boasts that this bike could replace a delivery van, and part of the goal of the Biz Plan contest was to show that.
“What makes this front loader special is the super smooth dual actuated cable steering, 90 degree steering radius and extra low front rack,” says Kate Herr, marketing coordinator for Yuba Bikes. “This all adds up to a powerful cargo hauling machine that steers like butter and turns heads everywhere.”
To enter, applicants had to submit a business plan summary that addressed a series of questions about their business and how the bike would be put to use. The contest ran until the end of July, after which judges Benjamin Sarrazin, founder and president of Yuba Cargo Bikes, and our very own publisher Maurice Tierney chose the winner from 17 entries.
While there were a lot of great ones, The Crepe Cart’s dream of a roving fleet of snack-serving cargo bikes was pretty inspiring, and it took the cake (or crepe?), so to speak.
The Crepe Cart is a wagon push cart that has been serving sweet and savory crepes daily in the French Quarter area of New Orleans, Louisiana for the past four years. Part of the creperie’s vision is to take its mobile operations to the next level and a cargo bike is an excellent way to accomplish that. One of the managers of the business owns a Yuba, found out about the contest and was inspired to make a crepe bike.
The Crepe Cart’s new Supermarché will initially be used to make deliveries during the day and for special French Quarter events. Eventually, the business would like to employ multiple bikes to rove around the city selling crepes, a move that will hopefully cause the Cart to “become legendary.”
Have a great business plan or idea for a cargo bike but missed the contest? Don’t fret; Herr says that Yuba will definitely be doing similar contests in the future. “We’ve found this is a great way to connect with folks who are looking to dive into the cargo bike lifestyle so even if they don’t win the contest we can reach out later and answer any questions or help remove any barriers that might be standing in the way,” she says. “Plus,” she adds, “It’s really fun for us!
