What’s your favorite Seattle bike-powered business?

Eric at Tubulocity ran into Steve Richmond of Garden Cycles the other day while riding under the West Seattle bridge. Turns out, Garden Cycles is a gardening service concentrating on planting native species and removing invasive ones. Oh, also, they do a whole lot of the work using bikes (the video above was posted by the good folks at Undriving in April).

So, this got me thinking: How many awesome at-least-somewhat bike-powered businesses are there in this city? I know of a few (like Piecycle!), but there must be many more. So leave a comment promoting a bike-powered local business (either yours or one you like).

  1. Awesome way to use a bike. For those who are a little less adventurous, an electric motor could be installed on the bike to provide a little assistance with zero emissions.

      I agree! I think electric assist can greatly increase the number of tasks businesses can reasonably accomplish by bike.

    I’m a fan of the Cape Cleare salmon folks and their epic Big Dummy / Trailer setups.

    And there’s the sailboat and e-trike transport CSA folks:

    But Kozmo.com in SF circa late 90s still has my heart.
