Just a bike?

Madsen Cycles Cargo Bikes
Yes, I know Nie has a Madsen.
Madsen bikes are gorgeous.
{See them all here.}
And, although that is how I discovered these wonderful bicycles,
that is not why I want one.  
Admittedly, I want a lot of the 'things' Nie has.
Anyone else?
But the bike...
oh, the bike.
You see, my dear readers,
Betsy cannot ride a bike.
She scoots on her trike, 
but it's not on a level even close to that of 
keeping up with the fam if we were to bike the afternoon away
A typical bike trailer would not be the answer, either.
They have lower weight limits, y'all.
Our girl is 6 and growing, growing, growing.
Alas, this bike will never be ours
unless some rich old lady buys it for us because
she has nothing else to do with her gobs of cash money,
OR if we were to win one.
{I blame the $1400 price tag.  Boo.}
I'm banking on the latter.
Well, it's more likely than the former, anyway.

Betsy would giggle the day away riding in 
the back of that bad boy.
And my grin would spread ear to ear for seeing it.

If you would like a chance to win your very own Madsen Cargo Bike...
click HERE!
But, seriously, don't enter, because it will totally
decrease our chances of winning.
Just joking!

Kind of.

P.S. GO VOTE!  If you don't, you have no pass to complain when things don't go your way.  Just sayin'.


  1. Can I say something that drives me crazy?

    Why doesn't a single picture of people in Madsen bikes feature ANYONE wearing a helmet?

    For letting me have that vent, I will not enter the contest so you can win :)

  2. You should check these out.
    How much weight can I carry in my Chariot? What about the cargo bag, etc?
    A. The weights differ between each model; the X-Country series single trailers can hold up to 75 lbs and the doubles can hold up to 100 lbs. The rear cargo pouch, for both single and double models, holds up to
    3 lbs. The Classic series can hold up to 100 lbs. All measurements are for passengers and cargo combined
