This is very nice.

I live in the tropics. Unfortunately, bicycle are less used now for transport, but more for leisure. Probably people here find the whether here too hot to ride a bike.

But, it will be good if city planners in the tropics can plant more shady trees along the roads to bring commuting by bikes back.

Some cities with a hot climate managed to bring back the daily usage of bikes, by building a very good infrastructure. The first example is Zaragoza. In Italy also there are some cities as Bologna have a high daily usage of bikes even if the infrastructure is not that great yet.

Have anyone ever used a cargo bike (bakfiets) ? What do you thing about them ?

Cargo bikes, built for the short haul

Jones, the owner of B-Line Sustainable Urban Delivery, uses the same technology relied on by postal carriers in Victorian England, or by Good Humor ice cream vendors in postwar America. Like so many fashion trends, the decidedly low-tech cargo bike – known to early 1900s peddlers and tradesmen as the “poor man’s nag” *– is making an everything-old-is-new-again comeback. From Portland, Seattle and Vancouver to Toronto, Boston and New York and points in between, urban businesses and residents are discovering what European and Asian city-dwellers have known for years: cargo bikes make sense, whether used to deliver goods through traffic-choked streets, lug kids to a park or buy groceries. Point of fact: 25% of families with two or more children in Copenhagen, Denmark, own a cargo bike, according to the European Cycle Logistics Federation (ECLF).

I used to have one, very handy for shopping and picnics; Great for moving kids around, little kids especially love playing in them with their toys on the move.
Mine rusted to pieces because it was too big to ever bring inside.
